A TEAM of football coaches are continuing their goal of setting up a new disability youth league for children across north London.

Organisers from the Camden and Islington Youth League, the North London Special League and Arsenal FC will be joining forces to hold a disability youth football festival at the artificial pitches in Market Road between noon and 2pm this Sunday.

League Secretary Karen Greene said: “Everyone is welcome to attend, it is free to one and all. Please come along and join in.

“There will be football drills and matches, while coaches from The Hub at Arsenal FC will be there too.

“The Camden and Islington Youth League will be hosting this event once a month, with a view of getting a youth disability league set up over the next 12 months.”
