Norwich Evening News has the story that a deaf footballer called Gemma Newson, from Caister in Norfolk, is off to Texas to play football (or soccer if you prefer) for a college team.
She said: “It’s been my dream to play in America, it hasn’t quite sunk in yet,” she added. “The whole team’s aim is to win the nationals but my personal aim is to get the most experience that I can, and then bring it back here and give that back to the Great Britain and England deaf football team.”
Why not followe her lead? If you’re deaf and interested in playing football, check out NDCS and get playing!
Don’t let anything hold you back.
