PLEASE READ : Scottish Deaf Football Squad

Dear Colleague

The Scottish Football Association is currently endeavouring to increase playing opportunities for footballers with disabilities. As you maybe aware, many players with disabilities regularly compete within mainstream football and, as a result, may not be known to our association(s).

During October 2005 trials will be held to select players for a Scottish Deaf* Football Squad to compete in various international competitions. If you are aware of any players who may qualify to attend these trials please register their interest, with me, before Monday 19h September 2005.

In addition, if you know of players who, in the future, may benefit from one of our disability programmes and can be classified within categories listed below please contact our office in order for a database to be established.

Ø      Learning Disabilities (Record of Education Needs may be requested)

Ø      Physical Disabilities

Ø      Sensory Impairments

I look forward to hearing from you

Yours sincerely

Stuart Sharp

National Development Officer for Disability Football
