Comets Inclusive Football Hopes to Create Sports Stars of the Future

An inclusive football team is going from strength-to-strength after securing accreditation from the Football Association.

AFC Fradley has created the Comets Inclusive Football team with the aim of making the beautiful game accessible to everyone while helping them grow in confidence and develop independence, communication, and life skills.

The team has been set up under the expert guidance of coach Mark Jarvis, who is AFC Fradley’s Disability Pathway Champion, and training takes place at Fradley Park School in Fradley on Saturday mornings.

Mark said: “I’m delighted to see my vision take shape and am proud of how much has been achieved in such a short space of time.

“Comets Inclusive Football is more than just a team, it’s a community where children with emotional, learning, and physical needs can experience the joy of football. This venture is a significant leap towards inclusivity, breaking down barriers, and creating equal opportunities for all to enjoy and participate in the sport.

“Having built a strong under 12’s team, I hope that we can now add further teams for Under 10’s and Under 8’s. Through this great club, I have connected with some truly wonderful people, made friends, and derived immense satisfaction from seeing our village come together through a love for the beautiful game!”

Mark brings with him a wealth of experience from his background in Education and Social Care, coupled with a Level 2 Football Qualification. 

AFC Fradley and the Comets are actively seeking individuals to join this vibrant community. Whether you’re interested in playing, coaching, or supporting the team in any way visit https://afcfradley.org
