EVEN if you are disabled, you may be able to play football.

A lot of people with health problems do - especially teams like Lancashire Rangers.

They took part in a whole series of league matches at their base - Crow Wood in Burnley - at the weekend.

They played five games against teams including Mill Hill AC Masters, Fleetwood and others.

Nelson player Scott Johnson usually plays in goal, but the fact that he has two broken fingers at the moment meant he could hardly stop shots by hand!

So he played out on the field - and scored 10 goals.

He said: “I scored three in my first game. We play five-a-side and the matches were just eight minutes. We just won one match this time.”

The last league matches of the season take place on Saturday, at Crow Wood, starting at 10-15 a.m.

Scott said: “We need more players for Lancashire Rangers - more defenders and more strikers. I will shortly be in goal again myself.

“If anyone is disabled and interested in playing, they can contact me on 07984 986149.”
