A basketball team for young adults with learning difficulties will represent Rutland at the Special Olympics East Midlands at Loughborough University next month.

Rutland Conquerors formed three years ago and train at Catmose Sports.

Three of the members won a bronze medal as part of the Leicester team in 2010.

Members of Rutland Lions attended a recent training session to donate £100 towards the £600 cost of a team kit for the competition.
