The Power Of Power Chair Football โ€“ Oliverโ€™s Story

Like many other eight year olds, Oliver Crawshaw loves sport. After coming along to our Power Chair Football session at Percy Hedley eight months ago, heโ€™s gone from strength to strength, recently making the step up into the first team.

Since day one, thanks to natural talent and the knowledge and support provided by Newcastle United Foundation coaches, Oliver has become a popular and important part of the Power Chair Football squad.

Oliverโ€™s dad, Rob Crawshaw, said: โ€œOliver absolutely loves the training sessions and since gaining the opportunity to play in the Northern League he has become even more determined to succeed.

โ€œHe recently scored his first league goal for the team and has even been given the famous number 9 shirt!โ€

Not that football is Oliverโ€™s only sporting passion. He also plays another disability sport, Boccia, which you will not be surprised to hear, he is excelling at.

Despite only playing for two years he has made three national finals and is now playing for Vipers Academy โ€“ a recognised gateway to the England squad!

To cap off his incredible progress, Oliverโ€™s sporting ability at such a young age was recently recognised at the North East Children of Courage Awards, where he took home the gold in the Sporting Achievement category.

Reggie Dornan, Senior Disability Football Development Officer at Newcastle United Foundation said: โ€œOli has made incredible progress since we started the Junior Power Chair club only last September.

โ€œItโ€™s a testament to our fantastic session coaches Sam Little, Codie Nichols and Michael Woods who work incredibly hard with the players.

โ€œOliver is definitely a great talent and one to watch out for in the future.โ€
