WBA Powerchair

WBA Powerchair have been crowned FA Disability Cup Powerchair champions after winning the first-ever televised game in the sport's history.

The game against Aspire PFC at St George’s Park went to penalties, following a goalless draw, but the Baggies would prevail in the shootout to lift the trophy for a second time, with their first triumph coming in 2018.

It was a historic moment for powerchair football, with BT Sport's live broadcast making it the first-ever game of powerchair football to be televised.

WBA Powerchair Co-Ordinator, Paul Hunt, was delighted with a successful day for his team, and his sport.

“We are all extremely proud of the team," he said.

“The last few years we have had lots of success and it has been the fruit of lots of hard work and dedication we have put in over a long period of time.

“With it being the first televised game, it is something we’ve been hoping to have happen for many years. We’ve always wanted the opportunity to showcase the skills of the players and for people to be able to watch their games.

"It’s been very noticeable how the fans have reacted on social media and all the positive messages of support given to the players. They really appreciate the support from the Albion family.

"When the season resumes it would be good to see some of the supporters who have enjoyed our cup success watch our league fixtures."
