A church in Gorleston was taken over by young people as a football cage was installed indoors.

Pews were cleared out of the way on June 15 as St Mary Magdalene Church in Gorleston launched its new youth club, Mags.

In a quick-paced game, pairs of youngsters took it in turns to compete with one another in the cage as others gathered around to cheer them on.

Rev Matthew Price, minister of St Mary Magdalene Church, explained, 'We were delighted to welcome 28 young people to the launch of Mags. From September, we are planning this will become a regular group for young people in school year 6 and above.'

Mr Price continued, 'Friday was the first of three special launch events and we were grateful to the Sports Factory team from St Thomas' church in Norwich for bringing their football cage for the fun!'
