SURPRISE! Dwight Gayle visits Foundation Power Chair team to present League Trophy
Newcastle United Foundation’s Power Chair team had a surprise visit from Newcastle United’s Dwight Gayle last night, who presented them with the North East Power Chair League Trophy, an accolade they have won for the past two seasons.
The Power Chair team, Glenn Miller, Elliott Caswell, Nic Packham, Nicola Thompson and Dale Jobey, who are all members of NUDSA, Newcastle United’s Disabled Supporters Club, have remained unbeaten since September 2016.
Support from the Premier League / BT Disability Fund enables the Foundation to deliver weekly power chair football sessions and also funded the purchase of additional chairs. The additional resources means the Foundation can start additional development squad sessions beginning next season in September.
Reggie Dornan, Disability Coach at Newcastle United Foundation, said: “We can’t thank Dwight enough for coming along to present the Power Chair team with their trophy. It was a huge surprise and we hugely appreciate him taking the time to come along to support our Disability programme. Our coaches Sam Little and Joe Deverdics have done a great job over the last two years in winning the league and deserve a lot of credit. It is not an easy Disability football game to coach, to win the league is great, but to retain the championship for a second year is even better!”
