A FOOTBALL club for those with learning disabilities has recently moved to play on the new 3G surface at Hereford Pegasus.

Aspire United FC have been working closely with PACES run by Jamie Pitman to develop a disability football team with Aspire.

The learners are just completing an Entry Level 1 in Developing Personal Skills Through Football, while enjoying their football training.

The qualification gives the learners increased confidence, self-esteem and sense of achievement which is so valuable to them.

The team have recently moved to the brand-new Hereford Pegasus facility which provides an appropriate playing surface to support the learners in developing their football, personal and social skills. PACES donated all the correct footwear to allow the learners to train on this state-of-the-art surface which enables the participants to feel comfortable underfoot to support their balance.

Jamie Pitman said: “Aspire and PACES would like to thank Pegasus for allowing Aspire United FC to use such a great facility. It gives the learners so much confidence to know the surface they play on is safe and flat. They all look forward to every Tuesday’s session at the ground.

"All of the players have been so excited to try out their new footwear on the pitch recently and are looking forward to using the facility on a weekly basis."

Aspire United FC are now looking forward to travelling and playing games at Pegasus against some other local centres to enhance their development further.
