A FOOTBALL team which is made up of people with learning difficulties or disabilities from Weston-super-Mare will represent the South West.
The Ability Counts Academy team was put together by Weston College, and finished with an unbeaten record after taking part in the Association of Colleges tournament. That means they will compete on a national level in Newcastle in April.
Nick Chadwick, lecturer in foundation learning, congratulated the staff and students involved. He said: “The festival showcased what sport is all about – players coming together to display their footballing skills, teamwork and physical literacy on a competitive yet inclusive stage.
“To represent the South West for the third time is an exceptional achievement and we are extremely proud.”
