Powerchair Football has arrived in Dundee in the form of new club Tayside Dynamo’s.

The club, created by local volunteers and Dundee Sports Development with support from the Scottish FA, is now an outlet for local powerchair users of all ages to take part in football.

David McArdle, Scottish FA disability development officer, said:“The Scottish FA are committed to ensure all players with a disability in Scotland have the ability to reach their full potential and part of these commitments is to allow greater opportunities to allow Powerchair users to access the game.”

The club trains every two weeks and are planning to enter Scottish FA warm-up matches ahead of competing in the first ever National Powerchair Football League in September 2013.

David added: “2013 will be an exciting time for Powerchair Football. After the excellent Powerchair Scottish Cup in 2012 the decision has been made to create the National Powerchair League to create more match opportunity for teams in Scotland and we hope to continue to develop the Powerchair Programme in Scotland and for further teams to be created across the country.”
