In 2017 RAF serviceman Flight Sergeant Jordan Brown was diagnosed with a terminal brain tumour after a seizure.

To raise money towards the football enthusiast's treatment his fellow servicemen held two charity football matches against East Harling and Thetford Town.

RAF Regiment won both games with East Harling losing 4-1 and Thetford Town's final score 10-1 to the Regiment.

Tom Morton, manager for the RAF Regiment Football Club said: "It's a pleasure to work with such a talented and professional set of blokes.

"To manage my Corps team is always an honour, to put a squad together to help one of our own and to see Jordan and his family smile is the ultimate, it doesn't get any better."

More than 20 Servicemen made-up the Regiment team, from Honington, RAF Brize Norton, RAF Leeming, and RAF Northolt. The games rased £500 will go towards medical treatment for Jordan who is currently looking at options in Canada or the MD Anderson Centre in America.
