Lothian Wolves powerchair football player Chris Jacquin has been selected for the first ever Scotland squad in powerchair football. Thirteen players have been called up to the national squad to face Middlesbrough Powerchair Football Club (PFC) at sportscotland’s Inverclyde National Sports Training Centre in Largs on Saturday 15th December (3pm kick off). The day will commence at 12pm with some development games culminating in the main fixture.
The rise to the top of the game in Scotland has been rapid for Edinburgh based player Jacquin, having only began playing the sport regularly in November 2016 and selection is testament to the ambition, hard work and talent he has displayed during that time.
Jacquin was instrumental is setting up Edinburgh based side Lothian Wolves and has been a pivotal part of the team during matchdays and training sessions. Lothian Wolves, the East of Scotland’s only powerchair football team was established by Lothian Disability Sport (LDS) in 2016 and has been developed by a team of dedicated players and volunteers.
Huge congratulations to Chris on the achievement and we wish him the best of luck.
