Teaming up with Claire Taggart and David Smith, Will has notched up gold medals on the European boccia circuit – at the Regional Open in Madrid in 2018 and the Regional Open in the Czech Republic in 2019.

Away from training and competing, Will also works full-time as an IT technician for a charity which helps people with disabilities find housing and employment as well as providing care support if required.

Ahead of the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games, when his local leisure centre closed because of Covid-19 and in need of a socially-distanced training venue, Will turned to his father’s farm and the trusty grain store. He also managed to maintain his cardiovascular training with a makeshift home gym.
