Yeovil's footie stars are taking disadvantaged young adults under their wing for a special coaching session.

Players like Kevin Dawson and Chris Weale are whipping a group of 16-24 year olds, who live in supported housing, into shape.

Yeovil Mayor Mike Lock attended the session which had coaches putting local young people through their paces with football drills, top tips and techniques usually reserved for professionals
