Trust Granted FA Licence

20 September 2012

Special opportunity for U's Sports Trust.

Essex FA and Colchester United Community Sports Trust are delighted to announce that they have successfully been accepted to hold the FA licence for the Eastern Region Cerebral Palsy Centre of Excellence for U16s and open age players.

The Centre will be delivered by Colchester United Community Sports Trust supported and administered by Essex FA.

The Centre will provide extra training and support for those players who are looking to progress on the FA Disability player pathway.

Practices will be held once a week and a number of fixtures will be played throughout the year (including two on the replica Wembley pitch at the new FA St. Georges Park facility).

Players involved in the programme can still be involved with their grassroots clubs.
