Police thrashed in a football match against youngsters in Walsingham have fought back to win a re-match 5-4.

In their first game against local teenagers, the Wells Neighbourhood Policing Team were beaten 9-0.

On Sunday, November 15, in a match of two halves of 30 minutes the police scored a last minute winner from the penalty spot to win 4-3.

Once again the teenagers helped organise the event, refereed by Toby Gould from Walsingham Football Club.

Parents and family members also joined in and baked cakes that were on sale in the village hall. Raffle prizes were also donated.

Arthur Howell butchers from Wells donated meat for a barbeque along with rolls and drinks supplied from Tesco.

As a result £245 was raised to be used to provide further youth activities in Walsingham and also for the KLFM community Appeal - where the young people buy Christmas presents for elderly people in the community and children who are in hospital at Christmas.
