Craig said: “I am so proud of all the pan disability players and visually impaired players – every single one of them played amazing football and should be proud of themselves.

“The day was a huge success, and I would like to thank Lyndon Wain from Nantwich Town FC for helping to make the day possible and a huge success.

“When it comes to football, disability doesn’t mean lack of ability.

“Hopefully, it will broaden people’s minds to the things that ‘disabled’ people can do.

“I am proud to be a part of Nantwich Town FC with Wolves, the Pan Disability team and now the up and coming Nantwich Town Cubs U16s.”
