A group of youngsters from an Attleborough school are poised to make it to the national level of the world's biggest football tournament for 10 to 12-year-olds.

The young football platers from Attleborough Junior School will compete in the south east regional finals of the ESFA Danone Nations Cup in a bid to reach the national playoff.

John Scales, a former Tottenham, Liverpool, and England centre back who serves as ambassador for the tournament, said: 'This is a truly remarkable project that brings joy to so many children across the globe. I'm proud to have offered my support to the Danone Nations Cup over the last 15 years. It's fantastic to see kids come together for a competition that promotes fair play, being active, and eating well, all whilst having fun. I wish Attleborough Junior School the best of luck in the regional finals.'

The regional final will take place on March 16 at Sporting Thamesmead.
