As CP Awareness Month draws to an end, we have been reflecting on how the team has made a difference to the players. It is more than just football….

Emily found her home when she joined the team. As the only girl she’s treated just the same as the boys. The day you made her Captain will always hold a special place for me – from being told your not good enough to play for other teams to finding the team she wants to play for forever.

The whole set up is fantastic and a great advertisement for disability sport.

Bob and Joe you are heroes in our eyes – you both do so much for the club.

Long may it continue the next few months are so exciting!

As a family who loves sport and watching their kids excel at something they love makes for very proud parents.

My son has always wanted to play football and despite searching for a club, since he was about 7, we could never find a suitable club.

We finally found BCCP FC in 2021 and haven’t looked back. It has a welcoming family feel and the coaches really take the time to get to know each player.

I have never know coaches so dedicated to bringing out the best in the players, not only on the pitch but also by developing their confidence and self esteem. This impacts on the players’ lives outside of football.

To play alongside other kids, with similar disabilities, makes it so much easier. Not just because it’s more of a level playing field, but also because they don’t have to explain anything. My son says he has found ‘his people’ and I hope he has found people who will be part of his life for a long time.

I have been waiting all my life to be able to play in a team and I have finally found that with BCCP.  It is one of the best feelings I have had to play with a friendly team and finally be part of something special with the added bonus of playing for my favourite team, Bristol City.  I felt welcome from the first day from all the players and coaches.
