Stars of the football and boxing worlds visited a college with Norfolk and Suffolk campuses for the launch of a new partnership with Norwich City Community Sports Foundation (CSF).

Norwich City centre back Ryan Bennett was joined by Norfolk's boxing brothers Liam, Ryan and Michael Walsh at Easton and Otley College, which was unveiled as one of the CSF's first three Community Hubs and the four sports stars joined a Premier League 4 Sport session for 14-19 year olds, which will be running weekly from November 20.

Along with Northgate High School in Dereham and Lynn Grove High School in Gorleston, the college has signed up as a CSF Community Hub to provide students and young people in the community with opportunities to take part in inclusive activities all year round.

Mr Bennett said: 'I had a fun afternoon having a go at table tennis with the kids that were there. It's great that the Foundation can give these guys the chance to try these sports.'
