Ryan's off the subs bench and back in the game!

Here’s a bit of #nationalvideogamesday goodness. Meet Ryan, a big FIFA fan, who hasn’t been able to play for about six years because of his muscular dystrophy. Last week our team managed to get him back on the pitch with a custom controller setup!

He’s now playing the game he loves via it’s two-button mode, using a low-force Xbox One controller stick mounted by his right hand for player movement, along with Change Player and the menu button. He’s also got three small switches positioned in and around his left hand for sprinting, passing and shooting.

"A massive thank you to Joe and Gillian for helping Ryan get back in the game," wrote his mother on Facebook. "Without people like them, people with disabilities would lose out on enjoying the things they love."

It's real honour to be able to help you enjoy your games again, Ryan!
