    THE JOURNEY TO INCLUSION – DISABILITY FOOTBALL | S5 EP3 | IN THE BOX - An England Football Podcast

    Series 05 Episode 03

    This month’s #InTheBox message couldn’t be clearer –
    football is for everyone! And it’s great news for your club.



    As well as giving fairer access to football for more people, improving your disability football offer is one of the best ways there is to grow your club. You can run more teams, have more players and volunteers, and
    better reflect your local community.



    A rollercoaster of emotion and insight



    From Zara Musker, captain of the England Women Deaf Futsal team, to dedicated disability football coaches, to The FA’s Baroness Sue Campbell, we hear valuable insights and see the joy of football for players
    with a disability.

    THE VALUE OF VOLUNTEERS

    Join us for our latest #InTheBox

    Series 05, Episode 02

    Time for a new #InTheBox episode, and time to explore the true value of volunteering – not just for grassroots clubs, but for the volunteers themselves.

    Join us and discover what volunteering mean to our hosts Ashton United FC, and for its host of volunteers who fill an amazing array of different roles.

    You put lots in, you get lots out

    You’ll see what makes volunteers gold dust at every level at Ashton United FC. You’ll hear what its band of volunteers get back from the time they put in. We meet club officials, players and of course volunteers who lift the lid on how the club rewards and recognises its volunteers, and the often surprising benefits volunteers receive for their support.

    Join us for a warm welcome on a cold night

    From sitting in the stand, to being the pitch, to relaxing inside ‘The Crossbar’ – Ashton United’s magnificent social club – we’re given the warmest of welcomes on the coldest of nights, and are embraced by a remarkable community and family. See it all #InTheBox!
