Clodagh plays football for England at Deaf World Cup

Second-year student of BSc Physiotherapy and sports scholar, Clodagh Farrell has been selected to play for England at the 2023 Deaf Football World Cup in Malaysia.

Clodagh, who plays for UoG’s women’s football team, was called up to represent England at the Deaf Football World Cup in Malaysia after impressing selectors in trials for the squad.

Clodagh said: “I’m really excited about playing for England at the Deaf Football World Cup in Malaysia. The performance of the Lionesses in the recent World Cup in Australia was really inspiring and it’s providing us with lots of motivation and belief for our tournament.

“It’s also a great opportunity for me to learn more sign language and become more involved in my deaf community, in a way that I know how to – through football. “It’s been really nice spending time with the team and constantly learning new signs.”
