Join Great Britain Amputee Football star Ben Houghton (pictured) for a free Amputee Football taster session this weekend.

It’s free for all amputees and people born with a limb deficiency to attend the event at the Nottingham Football Centre in West Bridgford this Sunday (30th October) from 2pm, regardless of age or gender.

Despite finding success playing for Peterborough as well as the national Great Britain amputee squad Ben is keen to bring his experience home.

He said: “I want to help inspire the next generation and feel it's about time we had a team based in the city I grew up in.

“It doesn't matter if you have never kicked a ball before, just come along and have a go”.

The session is hosted by the Nottingham City of Football Initiative – which aims to promote the sport in new and interesting ways.
