THANKS A MILLION: Children from Somersham's Silks Farm Nursery enjoyed a day at Histon Football Club.

The children, some as young as four, travelled to the Glassworld Stadium to present Histon star Erkan Okay, pictured, with a thank-you present.

England C international Okay has been helping the nursery's pre-school football programme for the last 18 months. He said: "I was puzzled to why the children from Silks Farm were on the pitch then the next minute I was being presented with an award by the children - it was a very touching moment."

Histon manager Steve Fallon said: "It is great to see football being introduced to youngsters in such a fun way and I am pleased that Erkan's efforts have been recognised by the nursery.
