A talented footballer from Littleport has been chosen as part of the England squad to play in the Deaf European Championships.

Will Rolls, aged 25, had to raise £1000 to secure his spot, with the local community all chipping in.

In recent years Will has played for Littleport Town Football Club and Peterborough United's Deaf Football Club.

Proud grandmother, Susan Green, said: "Football has been his passion since he was tiny.

The championships will take place next month with Will flying out on May 29.
