CHADDERTON Park cerebral palsy team players welcomed a very special guest to one of their weekly practise sessions at Manchester City Academy.

Midfielder Alex Zinchenko joined the Eagles CP youngsters for a game, a welcome training boost for the youngsters who play once a month in the Manchester Ability Counts League against teams from Manchester United, Everton, Bury, Bolton and Wigan.

They’ve also been invited to play against a new team which is forming in Swindon this week.

Exciting future plans include trying to arrange a match overseas against Barcelona or Real Madrid. This incredible bunch of inspiring youngsters are looking for a new shirt sponsor for the nursery section.

Sponsors get their company logo on the front of the shirts for £500.
