Liam Rosenior sees Albion in the Community's disability sport programme in action

Brighton & Hove Albion defender Liam Rosenior and manager Chris Hughton saw how Albion in the Community is giving opportunities to footballers with Down's syndrome at a special training session at the first-team training ground.

The pair met the Down's syndrome squad, who have recently started training regularly as part of the club's disability programme, supported by the Premier League/BT Disability Fund.

"It's a pleasure to be here," Rosenior said. "I am lucky to be at a football club that is very inclusive.

"We have disabled children here, women's team centre of excellence, and it's all on the same campus which is amazing. The players get to see everyone and we are all part of a family here."

BBC Match of the Day filmed the event as part of their regular Premier League community feature.
