Written by RockSport Radio on May 19, 2018
Scotland’s national amputee football team headed to Italy for its first official international away match on Saturday and despite a defeat the Scottish players described it as ” a huge learning experience “
The two sides met on Saturday in the village of Grezzana near Verona.
Brian Murray, from Annan, had the honour of captaining a team which has received training tips from Northern Ireland boss Michael O’Neill.
The skipper said it was the “stuff dreams are made of” to lead his country in the international clash against such a “formidable opponent”.
The Scotland squad is made up of nine players with a lower or upper limb amputation who all play with either the Partick Thistle or Dundee United amputee teams.
