Ability Counts League

Ability Counts Champions Decided

Three league titles decided on a day of finals.

The 2022 Cumberland Ability Counts League finale took place in Carlisle on Tuesday 30 August with all three league titles to be decided.

The finale of the tenth season was another fantastic evening, with lots of football played across the three pitches. 

Since 2012, the league has provided players from across Cumbria the opportunity to play regular football in a friendly and safe environment. Since April, almost 100 players across the three divisions have played regular fixtures at the central venue in Carlisle, with the atmosphere at the monthly fixtures providing a fun and safe environment for the players and volunteers.

Congratulations to the 2022 champions – who received their trophies and medals from Cumberland FA CEO, Ben Snowdon.

The support from the volunteers has ensured The Cumberland Ability Counts League has run smoothly throughout the season. We look forward to seeing you next season!
