Ability Counts is part of the Foundation’s ‘Football for All programme’ providing young people and adults with additional needs the opportunity to play football at a competitive level.

The teams compete at a regional level and some adult players will be competing at international level in Switzerland this summer in European Disabled Cup.

Liverpool FC Foundation disability coach, Ryan Moignard, said: “Tonight is a celebration of the whole season and a chance to get the players, parents, carers and everyone together, to reward them for their commitment to the programme.

“It’s about recognising their achievements and highlights over the last year.  The players’ attendance, attitude and effort have been outstanding and we are delighted to be able to honor them tonight.”
