Sponsored by DJ Sidebottom/ Glasdon Charitable Programme the second EAFA Junior camp of the year was another success and a step forward for amputee football.

New players and new personalities were welcomed with a number of girls taking their first steps into the sport too.

Speaking to the official EAFA website after taking part in her first camp, Marni, 16, said: “I’ve enjoyed the physicality and playing in an environment where everybody is equal.

“I’ve always loved football and knew this is what I wanted to do."

The EAFA continue to develop the game for all, with a sharp focus towards the women’s game and making the game more accessible and inclusive.
