Greig Taylor has been appointed as head coach of the Scotland Cerebral Palsy national team ahead of the World Championships in Argentina in September.

Taylor has been involved with the squad for 10 years, working as assistant coach for the last five under Andy Smith who has moved on to coach England.

Having previously worked for Manchester City in China and Scottish FA as Assistant Disability Officer, Greig was head coach of the Cerebral Palsy Under-19s at the 2015 World Championships when they finished fourth.

Ranked ninth in the world, having only started in 2005, the team are also looking to recruit players ahead of the tournament in Argentina.

If you know players who have cerebral palsy, stroke, an acquired brain injury, hypertonica, ataxia, athetosis, diplegia or hemiplegia, please contact for the chance to represent Scotland on the international stage.

Scotland have been to the World Championships on four occasions and currently possess three Paralympians who were involved in Rio 2016.

They have been on form in recent times; recording wins over Spain, Australia, Northern Ireland and Venezuela.

Cerebral palsy football itself was created in Scotland and has a few modifications to the normal 11-a-side game.

There are seven players per team, played on a smaller pitch with smaller goalposts, no offside rule and throw-ins can be made by rolling the ball into play.

On the field of play the teams consist of seven ambulant athletes, with cerebral palsy or a traumatic brain injury, ranging from classes five to eight.
