Our club featured in the SL First Magazine:

‘Deaf Sport has a long and well established history in the United Kingdom, with many clubs forming out of necessity to give deaf sportspeople an opportunity that mainstream sport was denying them. Deaf Football dates back to the 1870s, and as with all deaf sports, the formation of clubs provided more than an opportunity to take part. Deaf sports clubs provided a sense of identity and community as well as competition between different clubs.

Deaf Football has survived the test of time and those clubs that exist still provide its members with a social and cultural bond that is not always available in wider society. A relatively new club is Fulham Deaf Football Club, and I have been fortunate enough to talk to Nick Beese about the club.’
