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.
