William 'Billy' Fowell is hoping to regroup the Laurence, Scott and Electromotors Sunday league squad he once played for.

He said the team, known as LSE Sunday FC, was made up of apprentices who worked at the company's factories in Norwich.

The world-famous firm had workshops dotted around the city and once employed more than 3,000 people.

Mr Fowell, 76, of Thorpe St Andrew, is now hoping to organise a reunion at the end of this month for all of the former players.

Mr Fowell said he joined the company aged 15 in 1955 and worked at its Thorpe Road factory.

He played as a centre half for its Sunday league team, which he said went unbeaten in the Norfolk and District League in 1964.

A date for the reunion is yet to be fixed, but he hopes to have it at Sprowston Manor Golf Club.
