The Harrogate Veterans have represented England at the annual Seniors World Cup in Thailand for the past 10 years - the players are in their 40s and 50s.

They won the World Cup in 2016 and this year proved victorious again, defeating Iran 2-0 in the final in the torrid tropical temperatures of Northern Thailand.

The tournament was first played in 2006 following the devastating tsunami that hit the country.

Authorities hoped the competition, featuring teams from around the world, would help rebuild tourism after the disaster - and provide additional football coaching for underprivileged children.
