Bibby Maritime attended the event again this year to congratulate the achievements of EitC
The annual awards recognise the footballing achievements of players from 10 of the charity’s disability teams that play across Merseyside. Bibby Maritime has been involved with the charity for several years and some of the team went to the Isla Gladstone Conservatory in Stanley Park last Tuesday to congratulate the players.
Everton player Bryan Oviedo opened the proceedings and awarded trophies for Players’ Player of the Year and Manager’s Player of the Year to players from Everton in the Community’s world-renowned disability programme. Blues Ambassadors Graham Stuart and Ian Snodin then took their places on stage to present medals of achievement to each participant from teams in attendance before Disability Manager Steve Johnson delivered the closing remarks to congratulate all players and thank their friends and family for their continued support before presenting a trophy of thanks to Bibby Maritime's Managing Director, Jon Osborne.
The disability programme delivered by the Club’s official charity is one of the largest and most respected in the world and provides football and physical activity opportunities for thousands of disabled children and adults each year. The programme is all-inclusive and there are teams available to those with any disability whether that be learning, physical, reduced stature, autism, cerebral palsy, deaf or partially sighted.
