The Scottish FA’s regional disability centre reopened its doors last month at Peffermill Sports Complex. This centre is one of three centres open across Scotland, one in Edinburgh, Glasgow and Aberdeen all being a massive success.

The first session back that took place in Edinburgh was a success thanks to the massive number that had signed up and that turned up on the day. The session started off with all participants taking part in lots of small sided games where they were observed expertly by the enthusiastic and professional coaching staff from the Scottish FA. Once the players had found their touch in these games they were put through their paces with some enjoyable and testing skills practices which worked on their dribbling, passing and shooting, all the skills that a player needs in the game today. The players then rounded off the session with a number of games where the standard of football was very high; with lots of goals being scored and lots of celebrations!

There were smiling faces all round as the players left already looking forward to the next session.

Jack Martin, Disability Football Coordinator for the Scottish FA in Edinburgh who led the session said “The number of players who showed up to the session was great. I just hope it keeps up for the next one. The standard of football I witnessed today was high and the players gave 100%, they were great! All in all a great day for us the coaches and the players!”

The next session takes place on the 4th October at Peffermill Sports Complex and it is a great chance to come along and play. All session are free so if interested please come along and join in the fun!!  Sessions will take place on 4th October, 1st November, 13th December, 7th February, 7th March, 4th April, 2nd May and 13th June
