Banbury Inclusive Football Summer Festival coming up in August

The Oxfordshire FA and clubs in Banbury are coming together to grow disability football in the town.

We are delighted to announce that Easington Sports FC, Banbury United, Adderbury Park FC and Oxfordshire FA have partnered to support the development and growth of youth and adult disability football in Banbury.

The aim of the collaboration is to provide a full youth pathway for players aged 5 to 15 to feed into the existing adult football provision currently delivered by Easington Sports FC.

To kick things off, the partnership is delivering a Banbury Inclusive Football Summer Festival on Sunday 20th August 2023 (10am – 12pm) at Easington Sports FC (Addison Rd, Banbury OX16 9DH).

The taster session is for individuals to sign up and will provide both youth (5 – 15-year-olds) and adults (16+) the opportunity to come and get involved. Everybody is welcome regardless of learning or physical disability.
