A KIND football team has honoured a very poorly team-mate by having his name printed on their shirts for the rest of the season while he undergoes gruelling treatment for leukaemia.

Sports-mad Andrew Davies, 14, of Old Brampton, was diagnosed with the condition last month and his friends from Chesterfield Town FC Under 14s have been wishing him well every time they run out on match days.

Players’ mums are donating blood and a fundraising site www.justgiving.com/Drewy-Davies has been set up.
