2: Sohail Abbas | Footy Ambition From My View

The Proper Footy Podcast

Wednesday, 13 January 2021 - 33 minutes

We're back with the #ProperFooty and Sohail Abbas joins us this week. Sohail has never let disability stop his pursuit of making it on Match Of The Day and the touchlines of a Premier League team.

An inspiration to us all, Sohail suffers with Spinal Muscular Atrophy which ended his playing career at the age of 13. He is currently Coach of the Silsden AFC U23 Development Squad, as well as taking on the main role of managing Route One Rovers FC in the Supreme Division Yorkshire Amateur League.

Big mates with Paul Pogba, Sohail’s coaching career is beginning to blossom and he’s enjoying life and the challenges ahead 

A hugely entertaining podcast and well-worth a listen. 

Proper Footy is brought to you in association with Settle United a ‘proper Yorkshire Dales footy club’ since 1884. That 90 minutes where nothing else matters.

Forget your multi-million pound players, your 6-figure salaries, your perfect pitches and your glamorous hospitality. Start with one green shed (ground being developed as part of series), plenty of pork pies and some half-decent football with loads of funny real moments and an insight into amateur footballers lives. This club is on a journey up the football pyramid from the bottom. Grassroots most favourite club, let’s see where it takes us together.

Without further a do, here's this weeks very special official (with unofficial bits) #SUAFC podcast brought to you from our Proper Footy podcast on all good channels.

Settle United Association Football Club was founded in 1884 and our team played their first football games at the ground we play at today, Bridge End. The ground is seen by many as one of the most awe-inspiring and beautiful there are in the United Kingdom; the River Ribble curves it’s way around the pitch and we have a picturesque backdrop to the pitch with the Settle to Carlisle railway line overlooking us, as well as the rolling hills of the Yorkshire Dales (Settle Loop walk) too.

Bringing you real, honest and entertaining stories from Yorkshire's Proper Footy Club. #SUAFC are an ambitious football club. We aim to provide a safe, well-organised club for local football players to enjoy playing and representing our Yorkshire Dales market town. We believe in ensuring our teams have the backing of a passionate management team to allow them to be successful on the pitch.
