Ross County and Scottish FA support special needs school

Wednesday, 04 April 2012


The Scottish FA and Ross County Football Club are making an impact in the Ross-shire community by offering football coaching to special needs school St Clements.

 

The school has a long association with the Dingwall club.

 

Each week the Scottish FA and Ross County's community coach, Steven Ferguson, takes a group of children for an hour long football coach at the Highland Football Academy.

 

He explained: “The children absolutely love football and enjoy each and every session. The coaching allows the children to get some exercise as well and play the beautiful game that everyone in the country should have the opportunity to play."

 

The sessions allowed the school to enter a Junior team into the Disability Football Festival where they managed to beat all the odds and come away with a silver medal.
 

Steven added: “Winning the silver medal was a great achievement for the children, teachers and the school, however as long as the children enjoy their footballing experience then that is all that really matters.
