Teamwork: all three Betts siblings are playing this year.

Young and old: The Stewart family have three young children playing this year, while the two older children are coaching.

Sunshine and good times: the kids were loving their first taste of soccer action for the year.

There were 28 teams made up of children from across the district, with age groups ranging from under-six through to under-12.
