We want to give more junior players with specific impairments the opportunity to play for England Para teams and get them on the England Para Talent Pathway. Manchester FA are seeking those with cerebral palsy, visual or hearing impairments who have the skills and a dream, to step up and play for their country. While playing their usual format of football, players are being encouraged to engage with the England Para Talent Pathway to explore their potential and discover new ways to play the game to suit them!
FA England Talent Days will be recognised as the first selective environment in the player pathway. The programme will identify and signpost players to the ‘right’ environment at that point in time. ETDs will not be viewed as player development environments. The England Talent Day will be underpinned with the formation of local Para Football Recruitment Networks responsible for driving player identification and recruitment.
