As part of the Tigers Co-operative legacy £2,000 has been donated to the East Riding Pan Disability League.
The bequest is directed at encouraging the young disabled to participate in playing football. It will be used in two ways. Some will go to help fund a trip for a group of young people to St George’s Park National Football Centre. As well as touring the SGP’s facilities the youngsters will take part in a training session there. The rest of the money will be used as seed corn to help develop a new league for players under the age of 16.
Frank Beill, HCST board member and former chair of the Tigers Co-op, handed over the cheque at the Hull University Sports and Fitness Centre at the end of August during the Ability Counts League’s regular monthly set of fixtures. It was received on behalf of the ERPDL by Pete Allison, the ERCFA’s Disability Football Development Officer.
