ASN National League Finals - May 2015

Tuesday, 26 May 2015 NLL Latest News

The finals of the ASN (additional support needs) National League took place on Wednesday 20 May at NL Leisure’s Ravenscraig venue.  Twelve teams from across six regions in Scotland met to compete for the prestigious nationwide title.

Buchanan high school in Coatbridge came third in a group of six and represented the North Lanarkshire region.  The team just lost out in playing in the semi-final and did exceptionally well to make the national finals competition.

Pupils from North Lanarkshire, Glasgow, Aberdeen, Stirling, Fife and Paisley schools now all compete in the event which is staged annually by NL Leisure in partnership with the Scottish Football Association and Scottish Disability Sport. 

The deserving winners on the day were Abercorn, from Glasgow but all the teams had a fun packed day with plenty of action and more than two hours of top-notch football.

“It is also an opportunity to scout the latest talent for Scotland national teams.

“The ASN league would not be possible without the help of the Scottish FA and Scottish Disability Sport; we’re really grateful for their continued support.   


David McArdle, Disability Development Officer, Scottish FA: 

“The ASN National Finals brings together the 12 best ASN football teams from all over Scotland to compete for the trophy.  The teams have come from as far afield as Aberdeen.
