The FA Disability Cup 2019

The FA Disability Cup provides a great showcase for Impairment Specific Football. This year’s event took place over the weekend 15th – 16th June at St Georges Park. The Cerebral Palsy Final took place on Saturday afternoon between CP North West and North East & Yorkshire.

CP North West we aiming to complete the treble, having won the CP Sport National Cup in Nottingham in February and then winning the CP Adult National Football League in April.
North East and Yorkshire finished second in the league and were previous holders of the FA Disability Cup having won the 2018 Final.

CP North West started strong and created chances early on and managed to get the breakthrough to take the lead. That gave them a platform to build momentum and take a 4-0 lead. Just before the half North East & Yorkshire managed to pull a goal back.  Second half and CP North West went back on the attack and managed to add to their score to eventually win the match 8-1.

Well done to both teams for an entertaining final and to CP North west for completing the treble this season.
