Now in its 8th year, the 2019 season of the Ability Counts League has been the most competitive yet with all standings in the balance going into the finale event earlier in October.
This season, the change in venue has supported the growth in the Leagues, with Richard Rose Central and Carlisle Youth Zone providing a fantastic facility for players to enjoy the monthly competitions.
The Final Match Day was very competitive and played in a fantastic spirit throughout with two Champions crowned for the first time (Windscale AFC and Carlisle City Deaf) leading to some jubilant scenes at the presentation. Whether the teams were crowned Champions or not, there were smiles and high fives all round during the end of season presentation.
