Plans for Norfolk’s First Youth Disability League Revealed
We are thrilled to announce that Norfolk FA is undertaking work to develop a new Pan-disability Football League, which will look to begin in the 2024-25 season.
For the current season, we are currently looking to establish pan-disability sessions within grassroots clubs across the County, for children aged 6-11 years. With several clubs already signed up, we want to work with more clubs to establish as many grassroots pan-disability sessions as possible.
Once we have established enough grassroots provision, we are looking to create a County-wide competitive provision for the following season.

Norfolk County FA Football Development Officer, Tayla Woodhouse, said: "I am excited to be part of developing the accessibility of competitive grassroots football in Norfolk. We hope this project will be a step forward in providing equal opportunities to all youth players in Norfolk. It is a provision that we know should be offered and we hope our grassroots clubs help us strive to achieve this goal."
