Argyle Squad Learn About Restrictions of Disability

13 February 2018

ARGYLE’s players took part in a training ground session with a twist on Monday afternoon.

The squad were joined by the Campaign For Disability Awareness (CFDA) as they showed the lads what it would be like to do their day jobs with certain disabilities. 

The squad wore glasses which made them visually impaired and took to some shooting practice. Some of the examples of the glasses were tunnel vision, colour blindness and being half blind.

Later in the session Oscar Threlkeld took part in the shooting practice with a neck brace and a heavy coat as well as a heavy arm guard, representing what it feels like to have the illness Myalgic Encephalopathy (ME).
