Storm Isha didn’t deter our young Lions and Lionesses across the weekend as our juniors got the new year off to a flyer. 

Thanks to the DJ Sidebottom/Glasdon Charitable Programme’s support, amputees and those with limb affecting disabilities aged four to 18-years-old will enjoy six training camps in 2024..

Led by our fully qualified FA-licensed coaches, the youngsters get to play football in a fun, secure and friendly environment at the Home of Amputee Football. 

At EAFA we pride ourselves on being one big ‘family’ and that comes with men’s and women’s national team players supporting us with coaching the future.

The likes of Sean Jackson and Jamie Oakey (products of the junior programme), EAFA internationals who have won some of the sports biggest honours, while the trailblazer,  Shelbee Clarke (founding member of EAFA’s first ever women’s national team) are all known to have attended camps in recent months. 

A combination of technical drills and game situations were transitioned, as the juniors showcased the progression of their skills. 

Elsewhere, the formation of our new women’s national team is already producing an important pathway too, with juniors like Marni gaining experience of training at a senior level.
