Participants are male and female with a learning and/or physical disability and ages ranging from 11–18 years.
The club is run in partnership with Dungannon and South Tyrone Borough Council and the Irish FA.
Mal was full of praise for the players and coaches on the opening night.
“It’s great to get this club up and running.
“We hope that it can create a structured interest for those with a disability in the surrounding areas.
“And the evidence of tonight shows that it is a great opportunity to get fit.
“They can also meet new friends and have a lot of fun playing football under the guidance of some good coaches.
“They will enjoy themselves and pick-up skills,” added Donaghy.
