Clyde FC Powerchair coach Craig Thomson says that his side reaching the Champions League will be a learning journey as they prepare to participate in the best club competition in the world.
The club are based in Cumbernauld and have ran weekly sessions for over seven years. There are around 20 individuals who attend the club, many who suffer from life limiting conditions and use powerchair football as a driving force.
Craig has been coaching powerchair football since 2011 and takes great pride in watching players develop,
“Seeing new players come in and watching how far they can go. Some players have moved onto the national team so getting to see that is brilliant.”
However, Craig will face his biggest challenge yet as he prepares to take his side to the Champions League.
Explaining his side’s triumph, Craig said that it will be amazing for the club but knows that it will be difficult,
“Just to see some of the best players in the world and also the best teams that have been established longer than us, it will benefit both the coaches and players.”
