Jeremy Sarmiento, Moises Caicedo and Joel Veltman helped celebrate 25 years of disability football.

Three Albion players visited participants at a holiday football camp to celebrate the 25th anniversary of our disability football programme.

Around 40 members of the programme came to a football camp at the American Express Elite Football Performance Centre in Lancing, where they enjoyed a day of fun football activities before meeting some special guests in the afternoon.

Joel Veltman was joined by Ecuadorian starlets Jeremy Sarmiento and Moises Caicedo in meeting participants at the football camp.

The Premier League stars met and greeted participants, signing shirts and posing for photos with the group.

As part of the celebrations each participant was given an authentic match-issued Albion shirt from a recent Premier League season.

Coaches also nominated three participants who had showed lots of enthusiasm to receive a special gift; Sarmiento, Caicedo and Veltman each presented them with one of their very own signed Albion shirts.

Paul Brackley, our Disability Manager, was pleased to celebrate the anniversary with such a big occasion.

“The participants have all had a really great day today, playing football in the sunshine and getting to meet some of their heroes too.

“Having the players come down as well has made it such a special occasion for everyone. They’ve all gone home with massive smiles on their faces.”
