Ollie was introduced to football 7-a-side by his P.E. teacher at the age of 12, when he went to a development camp for the sport at Lilleshall National Sports Centre.
He is one of the youngest footballers to play for the England senior team and helped his country secure a 5th place finish at the 2015 Cerebral Palsy World Championships at St. George’s Park – their best ever results - and confirm a place for ParalympicsGB at Rio 2016.
With interest from Tranmere Rovers and Chester FC, Ollie has potential to be the first person born with cerebral palsy to become a professional football player.
He will make his Paralympic debut at Rio 2016.
