Budding footballers with a disability limbered up ready for their opening game of the season.

Students from colleges across the West Midlands battled it out to make it to the top of the table at City of Wolverhampton College on November 3.

The fixture was the first in the AoC Sport West Midlands Ability Counts Football League 2016/17, with seven teams battling it out for seven minutes each way.

The teams were made up of seven players all of whom have learning difficulties or disabilities.

The Ability Counts Football League was developed for players with a disability who want to play team football. To encourage more players to participate the League has established ‘pan-disability’ groups that allow players with different disabilities to play as one team.
