DOZENS of young people will put the footballing skills of police officers to the test in a five-a-side tournament.

About 25 people aged from 12 to 19 are to take part in the contest against officers from Cosham Safer Neighbourhoods Team.

Firefighters from Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service will offer activities including table tennis and pool and police community support officers will provide food.

The police and Portsmouth City Council-funded event will be held at Hillside Young People’s Centre, Cheltenham Road, Paulsgrove, on Thursday.
