City’s ‘Open Age’ disability football team are gearing up for their first international trip.

The players will be representing the club at the PAN Disability tournament in Switzerland which begins later this week.

The competition is part of a ‘Special Adventure Camp,’ that is being hosted by the Football Is More (FIM) Foundation - an organisation which supports children and young people in difficult circumstances through specific sporting activities.

The camp, which kicks off on 27 June, is designed to bring together coaches and teams from leading European football clubs to deliver football training sessions, exchange knowledge and share good practice.

Following four days training, the tournament will bring proceedings to a close when it kicks off in the Swiss capital of Zurich.

Teams and coaches from England, Germany, Abu Dhabi, Liechtenstein, Switzerland and Austria will be represented and stepping out for City will be, Tom Lawson, Thomas Garrity, Segun Osisami, David Maguire, Luke Smith, William Hibbert and Ashley Smith.

As part of City in the Community’s ‘One City’ disability programme two extra curriculum football sessions are delivered for disabled adults.

From these sessions players are given the opportunity to play in monthly fixtures in the Greater Manchester Ability Counts League.

For anyone interested in participating in the disability programme, we are currently offering two free sessions, which are delivered during term time only.
