Young CSF disability participant to bring out matchball

NORWICH City will welcome Will Clarke as their Community Hero for this Saturday's match against Nottingham Forest at Carrow Road (3pm).

Will has benefitted enormously from the programme offered by the Club through the Community Sports Foundation (CSF), and will have the honour of bringing out the matchball ahead of kick-off.

The youngster, who has cerebral palsy plus a number of other medical problems, is an enthusiastic participant who regularly attends numerous disability sports sessions provided by CSF.

Proud Mum, Amanda, has noticed a number of changes since his involvement with CSF and said: “He’s a lot more sociable; before he did a lot of things by himself and now he’s much more keen to be with other people.

"He’s met new people and has learned a lot of new things. Will has always loved sport, but he's not able to attend many mainstream sessions.

"If it wasn't for the fundraising that is done for the charity, he probably couldn't participate in the variety of sports that he does."

CSF Disability coordinator Lewis Plowman added: “Will has really developed with us since joining our programme.

“He is a big character and many of our younger participants look up to him as a role model. He’s a deserving Community Hero and will hopefully treasure his special moment on Saturday for years to come.”

The Disability programmes which Will enjoys is made possible courtesy of funding through CSF's Sporting Light Appeal.

Prior to the game, volunteers will be collecting for the Appeal outside the ground.
