Refugees and asylum seekers find benefits in playing football in Barnsley as part of a community project.

Refugee Tigers, run by Barnsley FC's Reds in the Community, has players from Iran, Eritrea and Sudan among others.

About 30 players get a weekly coaching session followed by a match. They say it keeps them fit and helps improve their English language skills.
