Foundation Deaf Football Youth Prospect To Attend National FA Emerging Talent Trials

โ€œHe represents the next generation of our Disability participants who have an actual pathway to progress to the best of their abilityโ€.

Elliott Tyler is nine years old. He has a hearing impairment. But heโ€™s also one of the countries brightest deaf footballing prospects.

After attending weekly deaf football sessions provided by the Newcastle United Foundation at his school Elliottโ€™s love for the game continued to grow. Thanks to the experience of regular structured football coaching Elliottโ€™s skill set also began to improve rapidly.

Foundation coaches quickly identified him as a talented prospect and spoke to his parents about joining up with our advanced coaching sessions. The rest, as they say, is history.

Elliott was enrolled for a year-long course and began training with other โ€˜mainstreamโ€™ children, an experience which led to him signing for his first boys club, and playing regular football every week for Heaton Hawks.

Lead coach Peter Jackson said โ€˜As soon as Elliott joined the group he was a very sociable and outgoing boy. He always smiles and is eager to improve and is showing excellent technical abilityโ€™.

And Elliottโ€™s meteoric rise has not stopped there. The Foundation received an invitation from the FA at the end of last year to nominate deaf boys between 8 and 11 years old who attend our weekly sessions, to take part in their Emerging Talent programme trials in Leeds.

It will come as no surprise that Elliott was successful and has been selected to attend the programme, which will be held in his school half term holidays.

Reggie Dornan, Disability Football Development Officer said, โ€˜Elliott has been on our programmes for 2 years now and continues to improve, we nominated him to go to these trials in October and without doubt has the ability to go far in the England FA Deaf football programme too.โ€™
