The Keynsham Mencap Society football team are celebrating after winning Division 2 of the disability football league. The team, made up of 16 people with Learning Disabilities, play in the Somerset FA Ability Counts League and play against other disability football teams across the South West.
The team played their final 4 matches at the fixture on 27th April at Strode College, winning 3 of their games to be crowned champions. The players were awarded a cup and medals during a presentation following the final match.
Only 6 weeks ago the team were awarded the Contribution to Inclusive Sports at the BANES Chair Sports Awards in recognition of the hard work the team have put in to making their club a success.
We are very proud of the players and very grateful to the coach and volunteers that support the club and make it all possible.
