The Scottish FA brought the National Disability Football Roadshow to Greenock on Saturday.

These roadshows are designed to give players with a range of ambulant disabilities (non wheelchair users) the opportunity to play football with their peers in a safe and fun environment.

There was a real feel good factor at the roadshow. With Tartan Army songs playing, Craig Gordon target practice, and life size Scotland Internationalist mannequins, everything was in place for a great day.

The session started off with all participants taking part in specific skill stations, working on passing, shooting, control and dribbling, with coaches from the Scottish FA and volunteers from Inverclyde Council.

The players also took part in small sided games and finished with a penalty shoot out against the coaches.

Greig Taylor, Assistant National Football Development Officer – Disability, delivers the roadshows. He said: “It was great to see so many local players attending the session on Saturday. With so much exciting talent on show the future is definitely bright for Disability football”.

The next Disability Roadshow will take place on the 31st October in Dumfries. For more information regarding Disability Football, please contact Greig Taylor on
