Bridport has its very own American Football team.

The Vikings are brand new and they're looking for more players to join their squad.

The American game played in pads and helmet is one of the fastest growing sports in the UK with sell-out crowds packing into Wembley Stadium for the international games.

Dominic plays Quarterback and told Wessex FM they've had a few practises so far and had a round 20 people join including some former University players who bring a wealth of experience to the team;

"It's a fast and technical game. It's also mind over matter too with organising and a little trickery with the plays."

Dominic says beginners are welcome;

"Fitness isn't a problem, you don't need any experience just come down, get stuck in and learn as you go."

If you fancy giving American football a go the Bridport Vikings practise on Wednesday nights at the Colfox School on astro turf - you can find out more by clicking here.
