Nantwich Town disability football tournament

Nantwich Town Disability Football are hosting a PAN disability football tournament at Nantwich Town FC on August 13, writes Jonathan White.

The tournament will showcase local disability football and will be followed by an exhibition game of visually impaired players versus sighted players.

The 10 teams in the tournament will include four teams from Nantwich (two PAN-disability teams and two visually-impaired teams) and six teams that have been invited by organisers.

The winning team will receive trophies and the title of NTDF/Direct Access Disability Cup champions, the runners-up will receive second-place trophy.

There will be a player of the tournament trophy, and medals for the winners and runners up of a ‘plate final’ for the two teams that finish bottom of their group.

Craig Acton, Nantwich Town Disability Football, said: “I am looking forward to playing in the showcase tournament and helping show people how far disability football has come at Nantwich Town over the last few years.

“We also aim to show that having a disability doesn’t mean a lack of ability.
