Despite being isolated in their respective homes, players and coaches from across 34 teams at a Norfolk football club have come together to record a video of their skills.

Horsford FC have released the footage in a bid to encourage its members and others to follow government advice and avoid leaving their homes unless it is necessary during the coronavirus lockdown.

The video shows players from the youth teams to the first team keeping the ball up and passing it on to others while wearing their club colours, all in their own homes and gardens.

The club has also transformed its badge and social media icons, changing their colours to blue and showing a message of support to the NHS.

Club chairman Chris Brown said: “We’re all frustrated with the current situation imposed upon us, but we felt it was important to connect our players whilst this phase was occuring.

“We’re a community club and it’s been fantastic to see everyone get kitted up and out in the garden this weekend.”
