Ex-Hamble Student and Burnley striker Danny Ings launches the Danny Ings Disability Project

Ex-Hamble Community Sports College student and Premiership football team Burnley’s young striker Danny Ings cannot stop smiling. He is finally realising a long-held ambition – by passing on his skills, and more importantly – putting smiles on faces, writes Sky Sports News reporter Fraser Dainton.

Danny explains: “A couple of years ago, I got my picture taken with a young lad called Joseph Skinner, who I gave my boots to. Before I even got back in the changing room, the picture had gone viral. From that day on, it really inspired me to give my all back, and do as much as I can.

“I’m planning to cover as many disabilities as possible, giving them as much sports and football coaching as I can. Also, I’ll be creating Burnley’s first ever adult disability football team, to compete in the north-west league.”
