Hollie Heil has loved football since primary school but her cerebral palsy made it difficult to get involved in mainstream girls' teams.
"I didn't really like walking anywhere," she says. "Even if my mum was going to the supermarket, I wouldn't go because by the time we got back home, my legs were hurting."
"I was a bit shy and a bit nervous because there were loads of kids I'd never met before," she says. "It was a bit overwhelming at first but I did my first three or four sessions and then I absolutely loved it."
With the sessions helping to improve her confidence and football skills, Hollie has gone from strength to strength.
She has captained the CITC disability girls team and has also completed her BTEC Level 3 extended diploma in sport, becoming a City in the Community apprentice.
Now a coach, Hollie delivers the school sports and disability initiatives, using City in the Community's Premier League and BT Disability programme to inspire others to follow the same path she has.
"When you see someone who can't kick a ball and then a few sessions later they can, you know you've made that difference," she says.
"Before, I didn't want to go out but now I hardly even have time to sit down. I'm always on the go and it's always about football."
