ANNAN CROWNED LEAGUE ONE CHAMPIONS

Last month Annan’s footballers were crowned League Champions in their first season in competitive football. The Annan disability side won the PAN disability League One title after remaining undefeated through the whole season.

The team were competing in the national competition after the Scottish FA were successful in a funding bid from the Scottish Government. This funding allowed them to create a PAN Disability League for the foreseeable future which started in August 2014. The league gives adults both male and female as well as youths the opportunity to compete in competitive 7 a-side matches over the course of a 5 league day, as well as a banding competition.

Annandale Eskdale Disability Sport are now working in partnership with Annan Athletic to develop disability football in Annandale & Eskdale raising the profile of disability sport and hope to develop disability football within the club. Next year the Annan team will be competing as Annan Athletic in the League in what is an exiting time for both clubs

George Morrison chair of Annandale & Eskdale Disability Sport and team coach said “I would like to congratulate the footballers on all their hard work, commitment and dedication throughout the season. I am very proud of them all and look forward to working with Annan Athletic next season to develop disability football in the area”.
