In the first of our Team Talk series and in celebration of International Day of Persons with Disabilities, our Football Development Manager, Mike Thurlow, sits down with England CP footballer, Golden Boot Winner and Banbury local Harry Baker.
Harry discusses his career so far, overcoming the challenges of disability, David Beckham and inspiring the next generation of players.
Our role as a County FA is to make sure football is inclusive and ForAll.
As part of this work we strive to ensure all disabled people have the opportunity to participate and enjoy the game in Oxfordshire – whether that is within the mainstream game or in disability specific provision.
To help raise awareness of provision available across the county, we have updated our Oxfordshire FA Club Directory below which provides information on the opportunities to play disability football in Oxfordshire.
Please note, due to COVID-19, some sessions have paused and do not plan to re-start until Spring/Summer 2021.
