Everyone dreams of pulling on the famous white shirt with the three lions on it, but did you know the Football Association supports multiple talent pathways outside of the national team featuring the likes of Harry Kane and Raheem Sterling?
In fact, the FA supports the national women's pathway as well as six impairment specific routes including the blind, partially sighted, cerebral palsy, amputee, deaf and powerchair.
On the 6th July 2019, the Sheffield & Hallamshire County FA will be working in partnership with the FA to deliver South Yorkshire's very own England Talent Day targeting players looking to access the impairment specific pathway.
The talent day, which will be held at Doncaster Rovers Keepmoat Stadium, is an opportunity for deaf, partially sighted, cerebral palsy & amputee footballers to start their journey towards pulling on an England shirt and representing their country.
This is truly an outstanding opportunity, for youngsters aged between 6 and 16.
If you are currently playing mainstream, playing for your school then Sheffield & Hallamshire would love you to come along. Should you already represent your local pan-disability football team the County FA will be in touch with your coach to recommend players for the day.
The day is designed to provide an opportunity for players to come along and express themselves. The day will be delivered by a high-quality coaching team who will make the day about enjoyment as well as giving participants the chance to show off their skills.
There will be a short brief for parents in the morning before getting straight out onto the pitches.
