One of the boys who took part in Freddie Flintoff’s Field of Dreams project has been granted asylum.

Adnan is a refugee from Afghanistan and has been living with his foster parents, Barry and Elaine.

Elaine tweeted: “As Adnan’s foster carer I just want to thank you all for your lovely comments. He is a very special young man who deserves it.

“But the biggest thanks goes to Freddie for his support and kindness towards Adnan.

“Can I take this opportunity to encourage people to consider fostering. It is the most rewarding thing to do. There are so many children and teenagers needing loving homes.”
