Billy-Lee Dixon

Billy-Lee is a 15-year-old footballer from Dronfield who is part of the FA Disability Emerging Talent Group which brings together around 20 of the country's best young disabled footballers, spending a week in March with the England CP Development Under-20 squad at Lilleshall.

Billy-Lee says: "I currently train three Saturdays a month with the East Midlands Regional Talent Centre in Nottingham. With the East Midlands talent centre we play matches/ fixtures several times a season against other regional talent centres across the country. I am on the England emerging talent camp for the 2016/17 season and I complete a ten week programme provided by the strength and conditioning coaches there. I attend three camps over the year which are based in Hereford. I recently trained with the England U20 development squad at Lilleshall in October 2016.

"My ambitions with the East Midlands Regional Talent Centre this season are, I want to win the national cup which is in April 2017 which we came second in the previous year! During my time with the emerging talent camp this season I would like to benefit as highly as I can with my development as a player in order to be reselected for the next development squad camp. My biggest ambition this season is to be selected to play in the next championships for the England development squad and earn my first international cap. That would be amazing."
