Young footballers are seeing their shirts worn with pride in Africa after donating more than 100 kits to young boys in Ghana.

Norwich United Football Club's U10s team started the project after noticing the Humble Lions team in Ghana liking their posts on Facebook.

Mr Driver said: "The manager texted me to say the boost of confidence it has given the boys is absolutely fantastic.

"Our boys love it and we want to do more with other teams. We would love to get more kits and boots sent out to underprivileged kids who just love the game of football."
