The campaign is a way for everyone involved in football to show their support for LGBT equality and inclusivity.

Rachel Cossey, Football Development Officer for Norfolk FA said: 'Our Rainbow Laces competition is a great way for clubs to support a fantastic campaign in promoting LGBT inclusion.

'It is delivering an important message that our LGBT community is welcome in Norfolk Football and will hopefully spark some friendly competition in the process.'

There are two categories in the competition, one for individuals and another for clubs.
