A FRANKSTON footballer and his teammates are up for the team of the year award at the 2019 Victorian Disability Sport and Recreation Awards.

17-year-old Oran Jones represents Victoria as part of the 7-a-side Cerebral Palsy State Football Team. Jones was selected for that side off the back of his good form with his clubs, Skye United and Mt Martha Soccer Club.

The  Cerebral Palsy State Football Team finished runner up in the All Abilities League last year, and finished runner up at the National CP State Championships. Their next chance of silverware will be when they vie for the team of the year award.

The Victorian Disability Sport and Recreation Awards celebrates its tenth anniversary this season.

The awards night will be held on 22 May 2019.
