A DISABLED boy is hoping to play football again after "struggling" to fit in in a mainstream club.

Louise Wilding from Wokingham and her husband Simon decided to fundraise to set up a new disability football group for their son Henry and peers to play in an environment where they feel supported.

After a long year of physio and tests, their son was diagnosed with Cerebal Palsy in October 2019 and in November, the two decided to put their three boys into a mainstream football club.

However, their Henry could not keep up and struggled with his balance.

The mum-of-three said: "Unfortunately, our son could not keep up, he struggled more than usual with his balance and didn't feel he had been good enough.

"Us as parents tried to reassure him that he did really well, but it upset us too. So after a long conversation with my husband, I have decided to start up a mobility disability football group for ous son and his peers, so they can play in a safe environment where they can excel, feel they have done their best and make friends.

"It is also a place for parents to come for support and a place for both parents and children to get a feel for togetherness, that we are not alone."

The family hope to raise just £300 to purchase football equipment so they can get the club rolling.

The mum stressed that the new group won't just be for children with Cerebal Palsy, but other mobility disabilities too.

Mrs Wilding added: "We would like to raise money to help set up this great group, the money will be put towards equipment and a hall in Wokingham that we can use all year round."
