“You could see what it meant to the team. They trained with excitement and passion and were full of confidence at the end of the session. They got so much out of it.

“I’d like to thank all who came and took part including Kirsty from Suffolk FA and a special thanks to Harry and Ben for giving up their time and really getting involved with the lads.”

Folami added: “It was a privilege to be involved and help out in any way we can.”
