In March 2010 I joined Liverpool Football Club Disabled Team known as Respect for All.
I go training on a Tuesday evening. I do circuit training and tactics. On Wednesday evenings training session we work on fitness, co-ordination and team work and also have a practice match. Every six weeks I play at Preston in the league and I am very proud that we won the Northwest Disabled Football Cup. On 6th July I went to a celebration evening with my wife Winnie to receive my medal.
Since playing football I feel much fitter and healthier. I have also made a lot of new friends. They also have social nights which i am able to take Winnie along with me. She enjoys coming to watch me train. We have also been to Liverpool FC for a dinner dance where i had the opportunity to meet Steven Gerrare and Fernando Torres but this was befor Torres left Liverpool. On 9th July i attended another dinner dance with Winnie and my friend Matty Adeniran, we had a great night and recieved another medal for winning the league.
