Mencap squad promoted before playing their first game
Published on: 09 Nov 2013
Hard work and training has paid off for Keynsham Mencap’s football team after they were given promotion before they’d even played a game.
FA officials watching the team at a Sports for All open day in September decided they should move directly into Ability League Division 1.
The Keynsham Mencap FC squad consists of Barry Hollyman, Dean Cole, Ivan Stephens, Jethro Payne, Jordon Phillips, Michael Bawdon, Phillip Blouet, Richard Yendle, Steve Owens and Steve Ferris. They are supported by head coach Rob Cook, assistant coach Mike Bull and fitness and conditioning co-coordinator Mark “Mac” McDowall.
The South West Ability League runs monthly tournaments, with the group earning two draws and three losses in their first games. They are now training hard for this month’s matches.
