READ | England Talent Day

13 May 2019

Could this be your chance to wear the Three Lions?

Everyone dreams of pulling on the famous white shirt but did you know the FA supports multiple talent pathways outside of the team featuring Harry Kane & Raheem Sterling?

In fact the FA supports the national Women’s pathway as well as 6 impairment specific pathways including; Blind, Partially Sighted, Cerebral Palsy, Amputee, Deaf & Powerchair.

On the 6th July 2019, we 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.

Our England talent day is an opportunity for deaf, partially sighted, cerebral palsy & amputee footballers to start their journey towards pulling on an England shirt & representing their Country.

This is truly a outstanding opportunity.

Who are we looking for?

If you are currently playing mainstream, playing for your school or even in academy football we would love you to come along.

If you represent your local pan-disability football team we will be in touch with your coach to recommend players for the day.

What can you expect on the day?

The day is designed to provide an opportunity for you to come along & express yourself. The day will be delivered by a high quality coaching team who will make the day about enjoying yourself as well as giving you the chance to show us your skills.

We will have a short brief for parents in the morning before getting straight out onto the pitches.
