Football superfan James Beardwell will be a special guest at tomorrow’s Dereham Town FC home game against Witham Town FC.

Mr Beardwell, who has autism and appeared on the TV show The Undateables, became an internet sensation earlier this year thanks to his passion for Witham Town, when a video emerged of him singing encouragement alone in the stands for the entire 90 minutes of a game.

Dereham Town Football Club said on Twitter that Mr Beardwell would be a special guest of the club’s manager, Neal Simmonds.

The message said: “In respect of his support & dedication to non league football - Our manager @neal_simmons would like to make @undateables_jb his personal guest for tomorrows game against @Withamtownfc - We look forward to welcoming you to Aldiss Park James #COYM #Norfolkfootball”

The September 15 game at Aldiss Park starts at 3pm.
