Esker Celtic are the only Club in Ireland who are participating in Frame Football.
The Frame Football programme gives players who require the use of frames/walkers the opportunity to play football, just like everyone else. The programme was started in Ireland about 18 months ago. As Esker Celtic are the only club in Ireland who offer this programme, they must look abroad for competition for the players. The competition is located in St. Georges Park, England and will draw Frame Football teams from England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. It is a great opportunity for both the players to play competitively and also to highlight Frame Football in Ireland.
For this trip, the team need the financial support to attend the competition and they need your help! They are hoping to be able to cover the cost of every player, one of their parents and all the coaching team for the weekend. This will come to approximately €4000. Any support that anyone can lend would be much appreciated by the team, coaches and parents.
