Deaf players can impress at high level

March 22, 2007

SIX deaf footballers from Doncaster are hoping for international success after being called up to represent Great Britain.

Doncaster College for the Deaf’s Taljinder Singh, John Atkinson, Chris Naylor, Daniel Hogan, Peter Wood and Alistair Dalziel are set to play for Britain on Sunday against Sheffield FC.
And, with the match being used as preparation for the 2007 European Deaf Football Championships, the talented half dozen will be looking to impress national bosses before next summer’s tournament.
Impressive displays against Sheffield would undoubtedly help their chances of booking a place in the squad for the competition which takes place in Portugal between June 10-24.
Alan Robinson, Principal of Doncaster College for the Deaf, said: “Our football team is extremely successful and we are very proud of all of the hard work and effort the players put into their performances.
“Sport is a key part of life at the College and we wish them the best of luck.”
