DUNCAN FERGUSON was one of four former football stars who helped launch Skelmersdale’s first Special Olympics club last week.
The Everton legend appeared with Chris Lawler (Liverpool and England), Mark Seagraves (Liverpool, Bolton, Norwich and Swindon) and George McAllister (Wigan) to unveil the club and pose for pictures with players.
Formed from disability football side Skelmersdale Men-Aces, Special Olympics Skelmersdale will provide year-round sports training and competition for children and adults with intellectual disabilities.
Carl Eaton, chairman of Special Olympics Skelmersdale, said: “The boys were overwhelmed with Duncan, Chris, Mark and George for giving up their time and showing such pride and enthusiasm in our club and athletes.
“We are absolutely thrilled to receive our accreditation certificate from the organisation to be able to provide sports coaching and programmes for local people with intellectual disabilities.
“We are so very proud.”
