The Liverpool County FA Ability Counts League has been split out into four divisions (Premier, Championship, League 1 & League 2) and a total of 23 teams will be participating across the divisions this season.
For the first round of matches on September 25th, Liverpool Transplant & Everton draw 0-0 in the first Merseyside derby of the season, whilst Maidan Lane Spartans played their first-ever competitive game in the league.
We'd also like to say a massive well done to the two newly qualified referees, Aidan Taylor & Daniel Richards, who took charge of their first games during the first round of matches. They were supported by LCFA Referee Jim Nolan, who supported them throughout the matches.
The next round of matches will kick off on Saturday 30 October, please keep an eye on our social media channels for more information.
Mark Horlick, Football Development Officer (Male Pathway) said: "It was fantastic to welcome everybody back to Archies for the first league game in over 18 months. It was great to see so many old and new faces back and we look forward to progressing with the league this season."
"Bouncing back from COVID was always going to be tough, but days like today fill me with confidence that our game can bounce back stronger than it ever was. Disability Football is the best kept secret in football and the years ahead are going to be exciting."
The league is currently looking to recruit volunteers to help out on matchdays, and is also on the lookout for a headline sponsor to help with the running and the sustainability of the league.
