 Jamie Westerman – Frame Football

Jamie has always played football and joined Manchester City disability team 4 years ago. He was invited to a Frame Football event at St Georges Park ran by Cerebral Palsy Sport where he tried and fell in love with Frame Football.

On playing Frame Football Jamie says, “It made a big difference because it gave me a level playing field so to speak, it was good to play with other people using frames, I was more aware of my own skills within football.”

Jamie was delighted at being chosen as one of Cerebral Palsy Sport’s Young Ambassadors, when asked how he would like to use his role his said:

“I’d use my role to encourage more children and young adults to have a go and enjoy the game of football the way I do, it is such a good feeling to be playing along with people of the same ability. I would also like to use my role to look at what other countries offer in the field of Frame Football. Football for blind people has come such a long way, now being in the Paralympics that I would like to imagine that one day Frame Football will have the same worldwide recognition”.
