like to get more ladies involved. Rebecca is the only female player in
the Great Britain amputee football league. Over the last year I got
involved with this team. The disability is not a bad area in a
sport like this. Amputee football is played all over the world. The goal
is to get other teams involved and create a vibrant league here.
