A sports group aimed at giving wheelchair users the chance to play competitive sport is hoping to begin training in Forfar.

Tayside Dynamos are ahead of the curve when it comes to wheelchair football, sitting proudly on top of the national league after an unbeaten season so far.

The outfit are the only one from Scotland’s east coast that feature in the league, alongside five teams from powerchair football pioneers, Clyde FC.

Dynamos are currently looking to secure funding for a fortnightly training session at Forfar’s Lochside Leisure Centre, and they are keen to encourage more members to get involved - the club is open to Powerchair users of all ages and backgrounds.

Local company Colin M Smiths has agreed to provide the team with sponsored strips, an incredible show of support that has left club officials delighted.

The Dynamos have won five out of their seven games so far, drawing two, have conceded just twice in all of their games - scoring an impressive 16 times.

Games are played at Motherwell’s Ravenscraig Sports Centre but the league is currently on a hiatus until February.

However, the team still trains fortnightly at Fintry Primary School and of course are eager to add an evening at Lochside Leisure Centre to their schedule.

Anybody keen on joining this quickly-growing sport should contact Dynamos secretary Ryan Galloway by emailing taysidedynamos@sky.com.
