Skem Men-aces THIS team is not just about foot­ball, it’s be­hind the scenes, the chal­lenges that these play­ers have on a day-to-day ba­sis – all of the play­ers have learn­ing dif­fi­cul­ties – but the club gives them the chance to travel up and down the coun­try to play the beau­ti­ful game, make friends and be part of a club.

When not play­ing matches, the Men-aces are busy with exhibition games raising aware­ness of men­tal health, men’s health, Men­cap, SHINE and many other char­i­ties that they help along the way by raising money.

Club man­ager Carl Ea­ton, who was born with spina bi­fida, says it was an hon­our to be in the com­pany of so many bril­liant peo­ple at the awards.

He said: “This was prob­a­bly the most mem­o­rable night of our year.

“I would like to thank all our sup­port­ers for their con­tin­ued back­ing but I es­pe­cially want to thank each and ev­ery­one of our unique su­per hu­mans at Skem Men-Aces for mak­ing ev­ery­thing that we have achieved pos­si­ble and for bring­ing so much joy and hap­pi­ness into my life.

“As a thank you to them, my wife, Mim, and I are tak­ing part in the Greater Manch­ester Marathon Chal­lenge, with the hopes of raising £10,000 to take away each and ev­ery lad on an ad­ven­ture hol­i­day week­end.”
