Two young athletes will benefit from a charity football match.

The Dereham and Thetford branches of The Nottingham building society will play each other, with money raised helping the sporting ambitions of the two local SportsAid athletes.

They are England girls youth footballer Blue Wilson, 16, from Sheringham, and wheelchair athlete Will Smith, 22, who is from the Dereham area.

Kick-off is at 1pm on September 9 at Rocklands All Saints’ ground, Attleborough.

There will be food and drink, a bar, music and a raffle.
