Sean Highdale made his Paralympic debut at Rio 2016.
A clear sporting talent, Sean previously represented England U16 and U17’s in junior international competition where he played alongside Premier League Footballers Jack Wilshere and Jack Rodwell.
He started playing for Liverpool FC from the age of nine and signed a professional contract with the club at the age of 16. In the 2005/2006 season when Sean was 16 years old, the junior team won the FA Youth Cup against Manchester United.
Following a car accident in 2008 when he was 17 years old, Sean’s potential for football 7-a-side was spotted and he made his debut at a Tri-Nations tournament at St George’s Park.
On his Paralympic debut Sean helped the GB side to secure a fifth-place finish. Bronze medallists Brazil and gold medallists Ukraine were the only two teams to beat them in the tournament.
