“My favourite thing about powerchair football is just being able to play football on a level playing field where disability isn’t a barrier,
being part of the club has really helped me in many ways. I have gained more wheelchair control, which I am able to use in everyday situations, and I have more confidence in my own abilities.” she says.
I'm a normal 19-year-old girl; I just want to be the best I can be.
