The Scottish National CP Football team is looking for sponsorship to help them compete once again on the international stage.
The team achieved the highest ever ranking for a Scottish national side, reaching sixth in the world in 2007 and are looking for the support of businesses and organisations across Scotland to help them rise up the ranks again.
Funds raised will be used to book pitches and facilities for training sessions, kit the team out with strips and training clothing, travel and accommodation when competing at international competitions as well as transport for national competitions.
The team will be playing against one of the top CP sides from England, CP United, on Sunday 9th September at Ochilview Stadium in Stenhousemuir and have welcomed the public to view the match.
Entry into the stadium will be free of charge, with donations welcome at the gate.
The Scottish National CP Football Team is Scotland's National Football Team for athletes with cerebral palsy, stroke and acquired or traumatic brain injury. The squad currently consists of 18 players, which includes numerous Paralympians, and is open to any Scottish footballer who has cerebral palsy, stroke and acquired or traumatic brain injury.
Driven by a team manager, and supported by three professional coaches and a physiotherapist, the staff ensure the team is held together by organising regular training sessions and arranging matches against local teams to keep the players ready for competition.
Giving up their time on a completely voluntary basis, the staff are motivated by the positive impact which this team has on the young men who attend.
"Having been involved with the team for thirteen years, I have witnessed lads grow into positive role models for young people with cerebral palsy" commented Greig Taylor, Manager of the Scottish National CP Football Team.
"The confidence which the boys gain when representing their country gets carried over into their personal lives, whether that be at school or in the workplace, therefore the team plays a vital role in their development" continued Taylor.
