We are getting to the sharp end of the football season when the titles and trophies will be awarded – and when a World Cup will once again grip the nation.
But it is the grassroots of the sport which we are focusing on today.

How many of these determined players do you recognise?
Our shots show Hartlepool taking on Saxon, and Greenside up against Mulgrave.
Another one is of the match involving the Rovers Quoits Club.
And lastly, who can you identify in the encounter, played between the Hourglass and Stranton?
