Polio Footie

Listen to the item

Graham Waugh contracted polio when he was little which left him with one leg much smaller than the other. Due to this he was never given the chance at school to play football - they deemed it too risky.

Graham had to wait until adulthood before he could start up his own football team and prove them all wrong.
