Ben Lampert: "Deaf people can do anything – they just can’t hear"

Community Sports Trust coach interviewed by The Guardian

28 March 2019

Ben Lampert, England's only full-time deaf coach, has told The Guardian he sees no reason why there can't, one day, be a professional deaf footballer.

The 33-year-old has worked with our Community Sports Trust for nine years after ­winning ‘Deaflympics’ gold and ­European Championship silver medals in his 60-cap career as a left winger with Great Britain’s deaf team over 15 years.

Having hung up his boots, Ben is now keen to inspire the next generation and has applied to study for a UEFA A License coaching badge. He will be part of the England coaching staff at this summer's deaf European Championships in Crete and holds hopes of coaching at a professional club in the future.
