Mercury photographer's Mark Atherton and the now-retired David Kenneford have never failed to capture the action from the pitches, pools and courts around the town - with thousands of brilliant pictures buried in the database from decades gone by.

This month's edition features Hornets Rugby Club, Weston Hockey Club and action from Banwell Football Club's five-a-side tournament.
