Earlier today, Tayside Dynamos Powerchair Football Club announced that they had secured funding through The Big Lottery Scotland and they would not need to change their practice schedule for the next year.


This past Saturday, the team held their last weekly training session at the  Lochside Leisure Centre where they trained with the ‘Granite Strikers’ Powerchair Football Club from Aberdeen.  It was their last training session made possible through a grant from Angus Disability Sports.  The team had fears that follow the grant’s expiration, they would need to have only one training session every other week because of funding concerns.

Earlier in the month at the 2014 Angus Sports Awards., the team won the Team of the Year category. The team is currently seeking new players from the area who are powerchair users who may be interested in giving the sport a try.
