A disabled snooker player from Norwich is seeking sponsorship to help him continue playing competitively.

David Church, from Lakenham, secured his first World Disability Billiards and Snooker (WDBS) open championship gold last September.

The 22-year-old, who has Moebius syndrome, is hoping to continue his success at tournaments across the UK later this year.

But he now requires financial assistance to help pay for entry fees, accommodation and practice fees.

He said: “I need the money to continue doing what I love doing, and allow me compete at something I have so much passion for.”

Mr Church’s rare neurological condition causes him to suffer facial paralysis. The former Hewett High School pupil play at Woodside Snooker Centre.

If you are interested in sponsoring Mr Church, email or call 07508244822
