Another of the WFA's powerchair football clubs achieved off the field success recently at their county FA grassroots awards evening.

At the end of last month Nottinghamshire Football Association held its 15th annual Grassroots Awards, at Nottingham Forest Football Club’s City Ground and Nottinghamshire Powerchair Football Club were the recipients of the disability club of the year award

One of the clubs longest serving players, Adam Langley, said

Having the club win this award has been fantastic and I’m proud to be part of this amazing club, which has enabled me to play the sport at competitive level.

The club, which trains every Wednesday night at the West Notts College in Mansfield has two teams competing at national league level; Nottinghamshire PFC and Nottingham Forest PFC, competing in the Muscular Dystrophy UK Premiership and Championship respectively.

It also has the Nottinghamshire Outlaws, which trains on Monday nights at the Harvey Haddon Sports Centre in Nottingham, which is the Club’s academy team, for new players competing at regional level. 

The Club’s Chairman and President of the Federation Internationale de Powerchair Football Association (FIPFA), Ricky Stevenson, commented

It’s great for the club to receive this recognition from Notts FA, the club like many others has dedicated volunteers working hard to support players of all levels to access the nations beautiful game, the club whom next year will celebrate 15 years of providing powerchair football in Nottinghamshire.

Congratulations to everyone at Nottinghamshire PFC from everyone at the WFA!
