He was just 16yrs old when I first met him down at the soccer club, with jet black eyes , and curly hair to match , and with an infectious smile that could light up any room. A quiet but pleasant boy, who enjoyed his sport as much as all the other boys. Until that day when, out of the blue, while at training he just fell over. At first no one took any notice, but when he got up and started to run again his back was bent over slightly .Over the next few months the bend in his back became more pronounced, and his left leg started to become Paralysised. After several doctors visits it was discovered that he had contracted low level MS. No one knows how he got it, but he"s made the most of it, and now as a 20yr old, he watches every game, from the comfort of his motorised wheelchair.
