Girl with tourettes meets football idol

Video report by ITV Anglia's Dononvan Blake.

Football is helping a young girl in Cambridgeshire cope with a neurological disorder known as Tourettes Syndrome.

Daisy McGregor, who's 11, says playing the game helps her to forget she has the condition.

Her favourite footballer is England's women striker Eni Aluko, who turned up to one of Daisy's training sessions.

"It's a bit mind blowing because I didn't really expect it. I just thought it would be a normal training session really with doing our filming.... and then she walked out the door and I was just absolutely amazed."
