On Friday 9th June 2017 at Alloa Rugby Club, five teams from Falkirk, Stirling and Clackmannanshire came together to compete at the Annual Football for All Festival organised by Clackmannanshire Council Sports Development Department.
On the day a total of 100 children, young people and adults with a physical, learning or sensory disability participated in the football tournament and additional activities such as beat the goalie, football skills, golf putting and racket sports organised by Jackie Perez, Inclusion Officer Clackmannanshire Sports Development, Mitchell Graham, FVDS Youth Work in Sport Trainee and Eva Finlayson, FVDS GOGA Lead Officer.
The 7-a-side disability football section was supported by Graham Harvey, FVDS Branch Coordinator, and Scott Kinross, Active Stirling Football Development Officer.
