Football meets the forces

THE Army FA headed to Portway Lifestyle Centre to put the participants through their paces at The Albion Foundation's Disability Summer Camp.

Football drills, obstacle courses and teambuilding exercises were the order of the day, with over 50 attendees taking part in the army experience.

"It's something different for the participants," said Ajay Gill, Albion Foundation Disability Coach.

"It's fitness for the guys and it's fun incorporated into that."

It was a rewarding experience for the Army FA as they delivered the session to mainstream disabled participants for the first time.

"To see someone achieve something they wouldn't normally give a go and grow in confidence, you're only human if you feel a good sense of fulfilment yourself," said W01 (SMI) Kevin Haley of the Royal Army Physical Training Corps.

Plans are in place for The Foundation to again hold a similar session in the future.
