England win another world cup

Great news all around

From nonleaguedaily.com

Lyndon Lynch, the current coach at Ryman League Premier Division club Ford United, accepted the Mussabini Medal for his efforts with the world-beating England Learning Disabilities team last week.

Lynch (pictured) collected his award from HRH The Princess Royal, and joins Sir Alf Ramsey and Sir Alex Ferguson as the only football coaches to be awarded the honour.

Goals from Brian Wheeldon and skipper Paul Walters helped England to a 2-1 victory over European champions Holland in front of 24,670 earlier this year.

The team, managed by Lynch, remained unbeaten through the competition, scoring a massive 42 goals and conceding just two.

That record included a staggering 8-0 semi-final victory over Russia, and England's Rudi Hall took the golden boot with 11 goals.

Lynch was delighted with the efforts of his side: "Our performance highlights what can be achieved by players with a learning disability if they are given the opportunity to play at the highest level."
