Hambleton District Council’s leisure apprentice, Joe McKechnie ,who plays football for the England Cerebral Palsy Senior Squad, has secured nearly £700 in funding from North Yorkshire Sport to set up the new club.

It will kick off with an eight-week course offering coaching in recognised disabled sports – including boccia, goal ball, Kwik Cricket, dance, dodge ball, skill based sessions in football and football for the visually impaired.
