A former footballer has appeared in court charged with gross indecency with a boy aged under 14.

Bryan Boggis, 75, of Suffield Road, Gorleston, Norfolk, denied the charge at Cambridge Magistrates' Court on Tuesday.

The offence is alleged to have taken place between 1 July 1968 and 30 June 1970, police said.

Mr Boggis, who played for a number of clubs in the 1960s, will stand trial at Cambridge Crown Court on 5 September.

Police said the case is part of a probe into non-recent, football-related allegations in Cambridgeshire.
