UK Young Onset Parkinsons's Football Team (UKYOPDFC)

A group of 11 of us have recently returned from Copenhagen after playing in the Ray Kennedy Cup, a football tournament for people with Parkinson’s. We had an amazing time, and although we didn’t win the whole tournament we came 3rd overall, which considering it was the first time all 11 players had met and played together was a great achievement!

A You Tube video has been made documenting our journey and some of the challenges we all encounter on a day to day basis.

There are plans coming together for a UK 5-a-side tournament in the Midlands in April 2020. All are welcome, regardless of age/sex/ability.

Please follow us on twitter @ukyopd and get into contact with any questions

Best wishes
Nick
