Premier League Disability Football Festival

By Clair Hill - July 11th, 2023 | Posted in Article

On Saturday 8 July 2023, seven students from Carew Academy represented Sutton United in the Premier League Disability Football Festival at Chelsea’s Training Ground. We came first in the group stages in the morning, unfortunately missing out on the finals by one point later on in the day. This was an amazing day with an opportunity to visit world class facilities. Our students had the chance to meet John Terry, along with Ethan Ampadu and Jodie Morris. They were also given the opportunity to meet amputee players, who showcased football on crutches. All of our students got stuck in and showed amazing respect towards the players. What a fantastic day!
