They are believed to be the only youth football team in Norfolk without a home they can call their own.

Cromer Youth FC, which is run by volunteers, give more than 150 children the opportunity to play football each week.

However, they are forced to hire venues outwith the town at Northrepps, Gresham and Bodham to ensure their games go ahead.

And now they are appealing for a club steward or groundsman to help maintain them.

Club chairman Dan Bailey said: 'Our team of volunteers are at stretching point keeping the necessary facilities required safe and of a decent standard for our 150 children to play football on.

'We are looking for a person with some knowledge of grounds care and a love of football to provide line marking and molehill solutions. A couple of voluntary hours a week would be of a much needed and appreciated help.

'We are probably the only club in Norfolk who don't have a facility of their own.'
