Junior disability teams compete in local tournament

U16s and U12s compete for Foundation.

The Leeds United Foundation junior pan disability teams took part in a local tournament in Bradford over the weekend.

Representing the club’s official charity, the Under-12s and Under-16s teams made the short journey over to Bradford to play in the tournament, which featured various teams from across the country.

This tournament was the last fixture for the two teams as they prepare to start their competitive games in the Ability Counts League that is due to begin again in October. There were several players involved and plenty of goals scored throughout the day, with each player receiving a medal for their achievements.
