Bangalow soccerfields are humming with Summer6s football on Thursday nights as record numbers of competitors have been strapping on their boots for the 10th running of the event.
The competition includes more than 850 players and has played its fifth round, the halfway mark for 2017, organiser Glenn Hanigan said.
As in the past, the senior category has been completely filled and sees 40 women’s and 32 men’s teams take to the fields each week.
The expansion this year has been to include a junior competition for 10–11, and 12–14-year-olds he said.
‘I guess we’re gluttons for punishment; we took on an extra 100 kids,’ he said.
Grading will take place in the next two weeks before a three-week run of finals determines the winners across various grades.
All the action at the Bangalow sportsfields on Thursday evenings. Juniors from 5pm, then three seniors games from 6pm.
