David Chick is a Football in the Community coach and was running sessions at Cromer Sports centre on Monday.

He said: “We have around 22-24 kids come here, the aim is to get as many kids from the local area, the youngest we have is five and the oldest is 13.

“We want them to have fun and go away with a smile on their face having learnt something.”

Other football sessions designed especially for youngsters with physical and learning disabilities, are running throughout the half term at Sidestrand Hall School, City of Norwich High School, Norwich, Lynn Grove High School in Great Yarmouth, Attleborough Junior School, and Fred Nicholson School, Dereham.
