These youngsters were having a ball at the Shay last weekend.

Around 30 children attended the Saturday morning club at the home of FC Halifax Town to take part in training sessions and a practice match.

Football in the Community Officer Lee Ashforth said: “We run two sessions on Saturday mornings - one for 5-7-year-olds and one for 8-11-year-olds - and cost £2.50 a week.

“It’s just about getting them into football, having fun and enjoying it. We also have about 15 adults who attend another session after those for people who like football and perhaps want to lose a bit of weight.”
