The Powerchair Football Scottish Cup

The Scottish FA held the first ever Scottish Cup for Powerchair users on Saturday 24 November 2012 at Glasgow Kelvin Hall.

David McArdle, Scottish FA disability development officer, said: “Powerchair Football is an area that the Scottish FA have been working to develop for the past couple of years and we are delighted that we have managed to reach this point and offer a games programme for the players and coaches.”

The event saw four teams take part to compete to become the inaugural Powerchair Football Champions and go into the history books.

After a full day of intense competition it was Clyde Caledonia who came out on top to claim the trophy.

David added: “The players and coaches have been excellent throughout the day and it is evident in the hard work that has been carried out during club training.

“This is just the start of Powerchair football with already a number of new teams wishing to take part and in 2013 there will be the first National League for players in a Powerchair along with the Scottish Cup.”
