FOOTBALL sharpshooter Mick Money has returned to his roots for his latest mission.
And he is keen to give youth a chance as he set his sights on achieving his latest goal.
The much-travelled Money has taken over as manager of Thetford Town - the club which set him on a journey that included Lowestoft, King's Lynn and Wembley.
“Thetford gave me a chance as a 16-year-old and if there are any players around that age who feel they are good enough then I will give them a chance as well,” said the 45-year-old Money.

His goal is to mould talented and hungry youngsters into a side that can lift Town from Division One mid-table into the Ridgeons League top flight within the next three seasons.
“There are three ways to get out of that league - you pay more than anyone else, you kick your way out or you bring in youngsters and I want to do the latter,” he said. “I am aware it is a big task and we may have to take a step back before we can take two steps forward. I am excited about the challenge and will give it my best shot.”

Money has one of the most extensive CVs in local soccer having turned out for Yarmouth, Lowestoft, King's Lynn, Sudbury and Norwich United.
He played in the 1989 FA Vase Final at Wembley with Sudbury and was the Eastern Counties League's top scorer for three consecutive seasons while with Lowestoft Town in the early 80s.
As a manager his achievements included taking Attleborough from Anglian Combination Division Three to the Premier Division title.
He also enjoyed success in youth football, running the Silfield team his son Bertie played for.
Up until recently he had been first team coach at Ridgeons Premier Division Mildenhall.
