Brian Murray lost his leg to cancer when he was 10 years old. He recently took up football again and has been travelling to Merseyside from his Dumfries and Galloway home to play with Everton Amputee F.C and when the team asked if there was somewhere suitable close to him for he and other amputees to play. Annan Athletic agreed to host the session.
