To celebrate the launch of the new Puma range of kit stocked by local retailer 4Sports in Dereham, the Norwich City star, has donated a full kit to Dereham Town Youth FC, his former club.

It comes as the youth team have been able to restart football, with some close matches already under their belt.

Chairman of Dereham Town Youth FC, Mark Donaldson said he's delighted that the mini Magpies were able to head back onto the pitch.

He said: "Team training started last week and our players loved being back at their training venues and filling their boots with Astroturf bits.

"Todd helped us over Christmas to raise valuable funds for the club by donating a signed Norwich City shirt which went to one lucky youth player in our Christmas raffle, raising £430."
