What do you know about Inclusive Football?
Inclusive Football is a program that offers players with a disability a chance participate in regular, competitive football in a safe, fun and friendly environment. The focus of inclusive footy is about the development of players skills and their social inclusion at community football clubs.
This Saturday September 4th, the 2021 SANFL APM Inclusive League Grand Final will take place where Kenilworth will take on reigning premiers Eastern Park.
Eastern Park, who went through the entire season undefeated, is aiming for its fifth-straight grand final win, which would be a huge achievement for the club.
Eastern Park player Alex Scott is an avid Adelaide Crows fan and has been collecting player issued/match worn AFL guernseys for almost 3 years now.

Alex is extremely passionate about creating more awareness about inclusive football and is encouraging people to either attend the match at Norwood Oval or tune into the livestream of the match that will be streamed on the SANFL Disability Programs Facebook page from 4pm.
When asked about what he enjoyed most about being apart of inclusive football Alex said;
"Being around friends who I call my family and having the privilege to play the game I love to play. "
"I also want to to help and encourage other players to see how happy we are around mates, win or lose, we are out there to have fun."
