LOCAL football is bound to be well represented when a fund-raising day is held tomorrow for Kyle Knights.

The youngster, who left Chantry High School in the summer, is the younger brother of former Ipswich Town and current Yeovil front man Darryl Knights and the son of Kelvin, who was a talented player on the Ipswich local scene.

Kyle has been in a coma for the last month after a road accident in Ipswich - with Kelvin and his wife Maria barely leaving their son's bedside.
