The Fulham FC Disability Centre of Excellence is a squad of players who are recognised as talented players of the future, the squad is a pathway to the Fulham DFC squad and hopefully the GB and England Deaf squad.

We have 8 deaf players from the Surrey region with ages from 13 to 17 years old. Overall the season has been successful, because early in the season the youth attended to football tournaments playing against other regions. It started off with average performances, then-after lots of training led to success, which was reflected in our tournament results.
