Derby County duo joined our ‘Down Syndrome Active’ squad for a Friday afternoon session at Derby College.

Derby County Community Trust provide DS Active Football and Multi-Sports sessions for those with Down Syndrome from the age of 5 years old.

The current DS Active Football Adults Squad represent Derby County in DS Active National Leagues and play competitive fixtures against other DS Active clubs across the country including; Newcastle United, QPR, Charlton, Cardiff City and West Bromwich Albion.

Last Friday’s session was extra special, as Derby County first team players Jack Marriott and Martyn Waghorn surprised our DS Active squad – the participants showed off their skills to the players and asked their burning questions.

Disability Manager at the Trust, Lauren Asquith stated:

”It was an outstanding experience for the DS Active players, having their two Derby County idols taking part in one of their sessions and answering their questions – they thoroughly enjoyed the night.”
