The Scottish FA South East Region hosted the Disability Development Day on Sunday 13th March at Forrester High School. There were teams present from the West, East & South East Regions, unfortunately the Grampian squad couldn’t make it due to circumstances out with their control. The event was organised by the Scottish FA and Scottish Disability Sport.
This was the first time the East Region had been to this event and they were certainly looking to impress with the senior squad winning all of their matches. The teams played in a round robin series of games, testing their ability against each other, teams who had a fixture break got the opportunity to practice and develop their techniques in the skills centre or play in a fun 4 game with their teammates.
Greig Taylor Scottish FA Assistant National Football Developent officer was delighted with the commitment shown by all the Regional players “there was hard work, commitment and good teamwork from all involved today, with some fantastic football on show, you can see the improvements in all of the squads, credit must be given to the coaching staff who work tirelessly with these players. I would like to thank the South East Region for delivering such a successful day, it takes a lot of behind the scenes work to make these events so successful. Robert Ure and his team of staff done a great job”
A special thanks to the volunteers from Stevenson College who helped out on the day, they worked extremely hard and were a credit to themselves and their college.
The next Scottish FA Regional Disability games are due to take place in the West Region on the 8th May at Toryglen Regional Football Centre. Please feel free to come along and show your support to the players.
