England Talent Day

As part of The FA's new and improved Disability Talent Pathway, a local entry-level programme has been introduced to allow that first step in to elite disability football.

Lincolnshire FA has been awarded a licence to host an FA Disability England Talent Day. This licence means that the county can deliver opportunities above club level.

The ETD is the entry point to the FA Disability Pathway and allows us to identify players with a disability in mainstream football or education that for some reason, may not want to be found. It will serve as a tool in player recruitment in identifying those players capable of progressing on to the next level of the appropriate impairment specific pathway and support in raising awareness of the disability player pathway available for players to access.

England Disability Talent ID Workshop

In preparation for the England Disability Talent ID recruitment day on Sunday 23 June, Lincolnshire Football Association is excited to announce that it will be hosting an England Talent ID Workshop in partnership with the England Talent ID team at the Keyworth Centre in Lincoln on Thursday 30 May.

The workshop is designed to provide information for parents, coaches and volunteers to identify potential players who would benefit and be eligible for the England talent Pathway.

The England Talent Day is a 2-hour session that will be held at Ruston Sports & Social Club, Lincoln, on Saturday 10th March from 11am-1.30pm.

The day will include a series of different football drills and games that aim to identify those players capable of moving on to the next stage.

The programme is open to players aged 7-11 years and 12-16 years with the following disabilities:

  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Partially Sighted
  • Deaf (Male & Female)
  • Blind (Male & Female)
  • Amputee

Along with those individuals currently associated with disability organisations, we are looking for those that are currently within mainstream sport, mainstream football and mainstream education. This opportunity will provide them additional coaching that will run alongside their current coaching sessions - it is in no way a replacement of where they are currently playing.
