THIRTEEN players who all have an intellectual (learning) disability, met to play the game of boccia on Monday February 25 at Amwell View School and Specialist Sports College in Stanstead Abbotts near Ware. The visiting team from Oasis Academy, Staines Green, Hertford, brought eight players along to play Amwell View School’s team of five players made up of Alex Frankcom, Kym Shepherd, Mitchell Wright, Rachel Dabin and Bradley Pratt.
