AFC Bournemouth Celebrate Weeks of Action

Bournemouth's ability counts team

AFC Bournemouth chose their home game against Manchester City to celebrate this year's Weeks of Action campaign, with the clubs Ability Counts team welcoming the players on to the pitch before kick off.

 

The Cherries’ dedicated football team for those with learning or physical disabilities took up their position by the dugouts as matchday flagbearers as both teams entered the pitch before Saturday's Premier League clash. 

 

Ability Counts aims to use football to show players of all ages that their ability is what counts, rather than their disability.

 

AFC Bournemouth’s disabled liaison officer Alice Jeans said, “We are delighted to be supporting LPF with the excellent work that they do.


“Their week of action is important and it’s something we take very seriously across the entire year.

 

“We’re pleased to welcome the Ability Counts team today and hopefully we can help raise some awareness for some fantastic causes.”

Level Playing Field thank AFC Bournemouth for their fantastic support of Weeks of Action.
