Barrow AFC captain Ollie Banks has been named ambassador for the club’s newly-formed disabled supporters’ association.

Banks has taken on the role ahead of Level Playing Field’s Weeks of Action campaign.

The midfielder, Barrow say, will help to raise the profile of the BDSA as the club continues its aim to improve facilities for disabled supporters.

The weeks of action campaign by disability charity Level Playing Field runs from February 26 to March 13.

Bluebirds players will be wearing Level Playing Field t-shirts ahead of Saturday’s home clash with Harrogate Town.

The campaign aims to showcase the good work being done by clubs and organisations across the country to improve accessibility and inclusion.

Banks said: “I’m so humbled to have been asked to become an ambassador for the club’s disabled supporters’ association.

“I’m really pleased to see the club once again supporting Level Playing Field’s Weeks of Action campaign because continuing the good work that is going on at all clubs is vital.

“I am really proud of the improvements that our club has made in terms of its facilities for disabled supporters, and I know that the formation of a disabled supporters’ association is a really positive move forward.

“It’s so important, not just for the club, but for all the players themselves too that all of our fans feel really welcome at The Dunes Hotel Stadium and able to enjoy watching us play every week.

“I am representing the team as captain, and I want all fans to feel a part of it.

“We want everyone to be able to come and support the team they love and enjoy watching live football at our stadium.”
