In 2007, the Scottish National Cerebral Palsy Football Team achieved one of the highest ever world ranking positions by a Scottish national football team.
Over ten years later, the drive and determination remains to reach number six in the world once again.
However, a lack of funding means the team are no longer able to compete on the international stage.
The Scottish National CP Football Team is Scotland’s National Football Team for athletes with cerebral palsy, stroke and acquired or traumatic brain injury.
The squad, whose new home ground is Stenhousemuir FC’s Ochilview Park, currently consists of 18 players, which includes numerous Paralympians and is open to any Scottish footballer who has cerebral palsy, stroke and acquired or traumatic brain injury.
Driven by a team manager, and supported by three professional coaches and a physiotherapist, the staff ensure the team is held together by organising regular training sessions and arranging matches against local teams to keep the players ready for competition.
