A signed shirt worn by Norwich City player Todd Cantwell is up for grabs in a silent auction at the club where the Canaries star cut his teeth.

Dereham Town youth chairman Mark Donaldson said the shirt had been kindly donated by someone who got the shirt at the Norwich vs Chelsea game in which Cantwell scored his first Premier League goal.

Mr Donaldson explained that all funds will go towards building a hub for the Magpies’ youth teams.

“Essentially it will be a space for players and spectators to grab a drink, when we’re allowed to hang out, and watch a bit of football.” said Mr Donaldson.

He added: “We have great facilities, but what we don’t have is an area for tea or coffee.”
