Bethel Amajuoyi, Caleb Ekeanyanwu and Ben Popoola, nurses at Langdon Hospital in Dawlish, are big football fans who have wanted to play since they arrived in Devon.

Within their first week of arriving, they went to watch Exeter City play, as well as watching Nigeria play in the final of the AFCON at a local sports bar.

Bethel Amajuoyi said: "I saw a post on our staff intranet saying Dawlish FC were needing more players. We got in touch and have been welcomed with open arms!

Ben Popoola at Dawlish United FC."Our team mates and management at Dawlish United have been so nice and welcoming to us. We travel with the team to play around Devon and it’s been a nice experience and we are blending into the community."

Ben said: "It's been a really great experience having to play in a really different setting from Nigeria. It's been a great team so far and every day is getting better and better."

Caleb said: "I really enjoy playing with the team. They are really such a great group and have been so accommodating to us."
