'Goalball puts everyone on a level playing field'

Once a month, young people who suffer from visual impairments meet at Londonderry's Foyle Arena to train for Goalball, one of Northern Ireland's up-and-coming disability sports.

The sport features in the Paralympic Games and one of the players hopes to represent Northern Ireland at the competition in the future.
