A football club for young people with disabilities funded by Children in Need will commence on 2nd February 2016.

The club will create an opportunity for all young people who have a disability, to come along and get involved in organised football, or just have some fun with their friends in a safe, fun and enjoyable environment.

Fun, enjoyment, physical fitness and socialising are the underpinning aims of the club, but a pathway will be open to the players who want to take it a bit more seriously. It is hoped to have at least 1 team competing in regional and national leagues and tournaments.

Everybody Active

Everybody Active is a schools based programme aimed at young people with various disabilities. Weekly sessions take place at Southcraig and Invergarvan A.S.N. schools as well as the S.L.C at Queen Margaret Academy.

Fun, active and challenging sessions are delivered by AUFA coaches as well as AUFC first team players.

The pupils also get the chance to attend training sessions and tournaments out with school, as well as an annual visit to perform on the hallowed turf of Somerset Park.
