Published 1st December 2022

Watch as young Liverpool supporter Joel, whose family were told he would never walk or talk again following a tragic accident, enjoys a kickabout with Reds captain Jordan Henderson.

Joel and his mum, Kelly, were recently invited to the AXA Training Centre for a tour and a kickabout to mark International Day of People with Disabilities, after Henderson heard about what he had been through.

Watch Joel’s inspirational story above.

Joel has a real passion for football, as well as all things LFC. He is a regular attendee at LFC Foundation’s weekly wheelchair sessions, which he enjoys immensely.  

Ahead of International Day of People with Disabilities, which is celebrated internationally on December 3, the club and LFC Foundation will also be supporting the Liverpool Disabled Supporters’ Association’s Festive Fun Day this weekend, which will provide local families with the opportunity to enjoy an entertaining day together at The Brunny.

Celebrating the diverse fanbase is a part of LFC’s Red Together work, which encompasses the club’s commitment to ensuring equality, diversity and inclusion is embedded into everything it does.
