Official Nottinghamshire FA Sports Photographer: FA Disability Cup Final


The FA Disability Cup returned this summer with England’s top grassroots powerchair teams competing at the WFA Cup final at the national football centre, St. George’s Park, on Saturday, 16th June 2018.

The competition, which is now in its third year, is the largest of its kind in this country with six cup finals scheduled to take place across the weekend in partnership with a range of impairment-specific organisations:

  • Amputee (England Amputee Football Association)

  • Blind (The National Blind Football League)

  • Cerebral palsy (Cerebral Palsy Sport)

  • Deaf (English Schools’ Football Association)

  • Partially sighted (National Partially Sighted Football League)

  • Powerchair (Wheelchair Football Association)

As well as the introduction of a partially sighted category, this year’s event will also play host to an exhibition of frame football, which is a new format of the game currently being developed in conjunction with Cerebral Palsy Sport for people who use a frame or walker.

It was a busy weekend at St. George’s Park as the 2018 FA Disability Cup Finals were held.

With six games taking place across two days in a variety of categories, there was some great action for the fans and spectators at the national football centre in Burton.

Congratulations to all of the winning teams and you can see the results from the two days along with a variety of
