Disability Team Brings Home Silverware!
Newcastle United Foundation’s under 18 Disability team won the National Childrens’ Deaf Society’s Annual National Football Tournament in Northampton this week.
The round robin competition featured teams from, Brighton, Derby, Glasgow, Charlton Athletic & St. Albans football clubs. After remaining unbeaten in the tournament leage the team went on to beat Glasgow in the Semi-Final securing their place in the final against Derby County.
Newcastle’s Foundation team dominated the game but couldn’t quite edge ahead, even after the game went into extra time. The game went to penalties with hero status given to goalkeeper Mohammed Nazary, a regular at Westgate Kicks, who saved the final penalty shot from Derby, to win the trophy!
The Newcastle United Foundation squad on the day were Mohammed Nazary, Ryan Dunn, Jamie Foster, Jamie Holmes, Alex Richardson, Adam Cutler Owen Ross & Hashim Mahmood.
Disability Coach Reggie Dornan said: “What a day! The team performed brilliantly, demonstrating superb teamwork and a great overall performance. I’m so pleased that they’ve had such a great day – they put in so much effort into training that the trophy is definitely deserved.”
