A FOOTBALL team for children with special needs has been launched and now has 15 enthusiastic players.

Fareham Town Mini Soccer team recently celebrated its second birthday by introducing its new team, Apollo Stars.

The football club held an open day at Fareham Town FC at Cams Alders to mark the occasion and invited children with special needs from across the area to join in for free.

Chairman Barry Cook said: ‘It was such a success that it’s now going to happen every Saturday.

‘The kids loved it and the parents were so happy. The important thing is to have football for all children, even those with special needs.

‘It’s really great for them and great for the parents to know that they have a place where their child will be looked after.’

Barry said that the club would welcome any other children who wished to join in.

He also said that the club is planning a fun run in September to raise funds.
