The Bedfordshire FA Ability Counts League, sponsored by The Rotary Club of Dunstable & The Rotary Club of Luton, have provided wonderful opportunities for people with disabilities to play in football competitions for well over ten years.

There are more opportunities to be a part of the magic than ever!

Results / Dates

The most significant aim of the leagues is enjoyment! In 2017, our FDO Josh Spavins introduced significant changes to the league in the form of 'Ability Counts Points' as well as new division names that now represent player ability rather than a tiered structure. Another shift in focus was emphasis on social development; we want to ensure players get as much life experiences as possible. Players and managers will be encouraged to contribute to the spirit of the leagues throughout.

Ability Counts Points
Players can earn point or their own teams, depsite being mixed up with other players, by demonstrating the below:

  • Sportsmanship
  • Good Humour

  • Role Model

  • Leadership

  • Clear Development of Players

  • Improvements in Confidence

  • Positive Environments

  • Players Enjoying Themselves

'Ability Counts Points' will help determine who is rewarded with trophies at the end of the season. Therefore off the field is now as important as those participating on the field of play. The league organiser scores each team out of 10. All points contribute to the league table which is kept secret until the finale day where the champions are crowned and teams can see where points were earned and what for.
