A five-a-side football tournament will be taking place this weekend in memory of a popular postman who was killed in a crash last year.

Richard Croome, 28, from Thetford died when he lost control of his red Vauxhall Combo van on Brettenham Road, in the town, on November 22.

The five-a-side matches will be held at Breckland Leisure Centre, Theford, on Saturday at 10am. Teams should arrive by 9.15am.

Food and drink will be available on the day and all proceeds from the tournament will go towards Quidenham Children’s Hospice.
