|The Titans have been working with mental health sufferers and the disabled across the Doncaster region, giving them the chance to be part of a wider footballing community, something Darren says has had a positive impact on many of the members.
A football club built on the back of a commitment to aid the development of the disabled and people struggling with mental health, the Titans have so far made a huge impact on disabled sport in Doncaster.
Darren said: “We feel it is important to be inclusive and promote equality throughout all our sessions.”
“It’s also very important to make people aware that there are teams out there which allow people to play football, no matter what level of ability they are. The opportunity is there for them.”
He said: “We as a club are committed to supporting it. We feel it is important to be inclusive and promote equality through our sessions and out representing the Titans at events all over the region.”
The Titans take part in multiple disability tournaments throughout the year, ranging from junior matches to adult leagues, all of which has raised the profile of disability in sport.
Darren does not plan to stop there, with aims to further increase the exposure of disability in sport. He added: “The aim is to keep the sustainability of the club going throughout Doncaster and continue to offer inclusiveness in all of the sessions.
