A PROMISING young footballer’s mum has thanked the Middleton Trust after it donated a new hearing aid which will help build her son’s skills on the pitch.
Ross Fraser was rendered partially deaf following chickenpox at the age of four and a half.
Since then, he has used a hearing aid in school, while pursuing his passion for football.
Mum Joy said: “The Middleton Trust donated the new radio aid for when he’s playing football. It’s synced with his own hearing aids, and will allow the coach to communicate with him while he’s playing.
“It’s a very expensive piece of equipment, and it’ll be a big help to Ross.”
Ross, who plays for Ellon Meadows Under-9s team, has already been recognised after winning the Goodwin Trophy for sporting endeavour last year.
“It’s great that his potential is being recognised,” added Joy.
