A nomadic Norfolk football club which has been searching for a home for 30 years looks set to finally get its own ground.

Cromer Youth Football Club has been going from pillar to post since the 1980s, playing matches at sites across north Norfolk because it does not have its own base.

But this is soon to change after North Norfolk District Council (NNDC) agreed for the group to relocate to Cabbell Park playing fields.

The grounds are the former home of the now-defunct Cromer Town FC, known as the Crabs, which withdrew from its league last year after failing to find a chairman or committee members.

NNDC members agreed this week to support the project, which is expected to need £237,000 in improvements, which include costs for a new clubhouse and connecting utilities.

This money will come from the sale of a portion of land at Cabbell Park to Med-Centres, who built a medical practice at the site.

Leader Tim Adams described the move as a "logical decision" following the senior team's collapse.

Cromer Youth Football Club continues to grow and now has 20 teams and more than 250 players aged 4-18.
