St Piers student playing football at Chelsea!

Greg has always loved all sport but particularly football and Manchester United. Football training started on a Monday night in the sports hall at school last term with a professional coach and Greg was determined he must attend!

After a few weeks the coach asked Greg if he would be interested in training at the Chelsea football training ground.

Much as the opportunity was amazing so was the anxiety at the conflict of training at Chelsea but supporting Manchester United!

Fortunately Greg managed to see this was an opportunity not to be missed and is now training every Friday night and playing in monthly tournaments with the '16 – Adult' Chelsea pan disability team.

The experience has been a real confidence boost. He has also just signed up to play in the FA Disability cup, so could perhaps he could end up playing against the Manchester United team?

Feedback from parents

Quote Icon My grandson has a severe epileptic condition. He has Lennox Gaustaut syndrome and difficult to control seizures. He can have many seizures throughout day and night. He was attending a special needs school but when he became the age of 16-17 years they could not meet his medical needs or physical needs. It was discussed that he would benefit from going to Young Epilepsy. How lucky he is to go there. It is an absolute school of excellence. He does and goes places that I never thought he would do. The heads, the teachers and all professional people are there to give and help with advice, care, and the vast experience of epilepsy. He cooks, swims, canoeing, archery and lots more. He is very happy and so am I. I do not worry about him as I have every confidence in everyone at the Young Epilepsy.
