Wisbech St Mary FC Parability Team have been given a helping hand by local McDonald’s franchisee Matt Jarrett who has donated a stylish new kit to the team.

Wisbech St Mary FC Parability Team is a project dedicated to members of the community with physical and learning disabilities. Set up by the ParAbility Football Project, it provides local disabled young people with the chance to make friends, get fit and enjoy football in a safe and fun environment.

Based at the Wisbech St Mary FC ground on Station Road, the team has helped to transform the lives of the 12 to 16-year-olds who play for the team.

Their inclusive training sessions are delivered by FA qualified coaches who have experience in coaching disabled footballers providing a positive experience for the young players each week.

Matt, who owns five McDonald’s restaurants across Peterborough, said: “It’s fantastic to be able to support such a well-run and integral community club. Wisbech St Mary FC Parability Team provide a fantastic service to young people with disabilities, enabling them to be a part of a team alongside those from similar situations. We are very much looking forward to seeing the team develop over the next season, proudly wearing their new kits.”

Rob King, manager of Wisbech St Mary FC Parability Team added: “Working with Matt has been an absolute pleasure and his help has been invaluable. He has been incredibly generous with his donation and the team are keen to repay him with performances on the pitch.”
