Members of Exeter City were celebrating at the weekend after the club won the Devon Ability Counts League’s Premiership.
They needed six points from the final tournament of the season, held at Newton Abbot’s Coach Road on Sunday.
And they achieved it to claim the title off last season’s winners Plymouth Pilgrims and finished just ahead of runners-up Exeter Tornadoes, from the Exeter Royal Academy for Deaf Education.
It has been a successful season for the Grecians’ ability counts sides, as the first team managed to make it all the way to the semi-finals of the national FA Disability Cup before losing 2-0 to Charlton Deaf. The second team also finished runners up in the Devon Ability Counts championship, while the third and fourth teams did well in their respective divisions.
Exeter City ability counts manager Paul Clements says the club are looking to start another side next term and is appealing for any players or coaches who want to be part of the team to e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
