The Scottish FA National Disability Football Roadshow was once again on its travels this time arriving in Dumfries.
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.
The day got off to a great start with the coaches putting the players through their paces with all the essential skills needed to improve their game, from dribbling challenges, control games, target practice and passing exercises. The smiles on their faces said it all.
With a short fluid break they got straight back into skills challenges, this time it was to score a goal into Craig Gordon, not Craig himself but a life-size targeter which covered a full 5-a-side goal. With the Tartan Army CD blasting out all the famous Scotland songs the Roadshow was in full flow.
Greig Taylor, Assistant National Football Development Officer – Disability said “it was fantastic to see the local players from Dumfries coming along and enjoying there football with a smile on their face, hopefully these players will benefit from the specialised coaching that they received”.
The next stop for the Roadshow will be in Dundee on the 14th November at Fintry Primary School.
