TyneMet pan-disability football academy

A new football academy aims to help disabled players combine college studies with football.

TyneMet College is launching a new Pan-Disability Football Academy from September 2020, which will allow students to combine college work alongside improving their football skills.

Partnering with NUFC Foundation, it’s the first Academy of its kind in the North East and students will get the chance to take part in competitive leagues and cups throughout the season.

If you want more information, there’s a launch night on Tuesday 22 October from 5.30pm to 7.30pm at St James’ Park or visit tynemet.ac.uk/events
