Alistair Patrick Heselton

Paralympic Footballer

  • Who is your visiting athlete?
    Alistair has an amazing story to tell of recovering from a life changing car accident which left him in a coma for two months in 2006. Previously a professional footballer, Alistair was told by doctors that he may never walk again and his football career would be lost forever. Through hard work and perseverance Alistair regained his health before taking up disability football, competing in the cerebral palsy and brain injury sufferers’ category.
