He was featured on BBC’s Look East last month showing players and staff his POSACTIVE project, to help other youngsters to communicate their feelings.

"I didn't really have a way of expressing myself when I didn't feel great so it's a way to help children like me because sport is a good way to express yourself,” he said.

"They are cards which can show how you feel, so if you are having a bad day you can pick out a card to make you better."

Dexter and his mum Clare have chosen to donate 10% of all sales to CHUMS Charity, based in Bedfordshire and Luton. As part of a whole range of services they run, they offer a football programme (Recreational Service - CHUMS).
