Sponsored by DJ Sidebottom/ Glasdon Charitable Programme the fourth EAFA Junior camp of the year saw a record number of participants attend across the weekend.

Over 30 boys and girls arrived at the Home of Amputee Football excited for what was yet another milestone along the EAFA journey.

As much as Reaseheath was basking in the sun, it was time for the future generation of EAFA to get to work. Senior England internationals Sean Jackson, Jamie Oakey and Liam Burbridge, alongside the team of EAFA coaches mentored from the sidelines.

With Sean, Jamie and Liam having won EAFA’s first major trophy (Nations League) since 1990, last month, it was only right that the trophy was also in attendance.

Saturday’s events came to a close back at the Wychwood Hotel as both parents, players and staff all took part in a game of footgolf – a bit of fun in the sun.

Refreshed and ready for another days’ worth of action and Saturday’s efforts were rewarded with competitive match action on Sunday morning as coach Will’s blue team faced coach Paul’s reds.

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

Thanks to the support of the DJ Sidebottom/ Glasdon Charitable Programme, The EAFA have been able to host four camps throughout 2023 campaign already.

At EAFA, our camps provide the opportunity for 2–16-year-old amputees and those with limb-affecting disabilities with the opportunity to play football with coaching from FA-licensed coaches.

The juniors will return to Cheshire for the final camp of the year across the weekend of

Saturday 23 and Sunday 24 September.
