Squad Announcement: Jon Peach

Photo 14-07-2019, 15 18 25I am Jon Peach, 38 years-old and was diagnosed in 1986, age 5. It’s been a while!

I have played since I was a child at a local level. Presently, I play in local churches league, although retired in 2015 due to persistent injuries. At the start of this season I decided to being playing again.

Ahead of DiaEuro 2019 I am feeling excited, nervous, and proud of what I’ve achieved and what we’re doing. I am really looking forward to the experience.

TDFC has allowed me to meet other diabetics who love sport. Sharing good and bad experiences, reminding me of the importance of testing and keeping on top of good control. Don’t let diabetes hold you back, you can do whatever you want. There will be tough times, but don’t be afraid to talk about it as there will be many in a similar position.
