Bob Fisher is recognised as an international leader in sport for people with cerebral palsy. He has worked tirelessly throughout his life to develop the sport of football, travelling throughout the world and running courses as far a field as Iran.

Bob previously held the role of Chairperson for the Football 7-a-Side Committee of the Cerebral Palsy International Sports and Recreation Association (CPISRA). CPISRA Presidnet Alan Dickson says “Without Bob Fisher CP Soccer would not be the exciting sport that it is today”

In 2009 Bob was a recipient of the Paralympic Order. This is the highest tribute a person connected with the Paralympic Movement can achieve. It honours persons who have made important contributions to the Paralympic Movement, have illustrated the Paralympic ideal through their actions, have achieved remarkable merit in the Paralympic sporting world or have rendered outstanding services to the Paralympic cause.

In 2016, Cerebral Palsy Sport awarded Bob a Lifetime Achievement Award to CP Football at our Cerebral Palsy Sports Awards. Bob continues to support our cerebral palsy football programme and our National Adult CP Football League finals.

Thank you Bob!
