A Furngate Youth FC player delivered a batch of his old club’s football kits to Gambian youngsters. Jammahl Jonn, 9, (pictured, front row, fourth from right in the checked shorts) moved to Gambia with his family last November.

Katy O’Hagan-Arnold, 29, the club’s vice-chairwoman, kept in touch with Jammahl’s family. She said: “He had given up everything he loved and we thought it would be nice for him to be able to carry it on in Gambia with other players.We like children to enjoy sports, fitness and football wherever they are in the world.”
