Visually Impaired Team Represents NUFC At Irish Tournament

A team of Visually Impaired adults from Henshaws Society for Blind People made the trip to Belfast to represent Newcastle United in a four team International football tournament last week.

The event was organised the Irish FA and ex Manchester United and Northern Ireland legend Mal Donaghy. The opposition included Lisburn Rovers who are currently nine points clear at the top of the UK VI league, Lisburn Rovers and a team from the Republic of Ireland.

Reggie Dornan, disability football development officer at the Foundation said:

โ€œThe players performed admirably against all the teams, even getting a draw with the best VI team in the UK.โ€

โ€œAll the games were extremely close, very competitive, and played in the right spirit. It was a fantastic showcase for Visually Impaired football both in the UK and Ireland.โ€

Philippa Taylor, community services development officer for Henshaws Society for Blind People, added:

โ€œIn addition to the football tournament, the weekend in Belfast was a big success. Some of the players had never flown before so the trip itself really raised their self-confidence. The event has been a tremendous success and they are already looking forward to next year.โ€
