A Somerset football club held its annual presentation evening this week, with young stars recognised for their performances on the pitch.
Burnham United staged its junior awards ceremony at Brean Leisure Centre on Sunday, recognising outstanding efforts.
Young members of the club enjoyed a disco prior to the presentation kicking off, before tucking into a tasty meal after the ceremony concluded.
It has been a successful season for the club on and off the pitch, with two junior sides winning league titles – and a £300,000 clubhouse renovation was completed.
Plenty of proud parents were in attendance to see their children receive awards.
Club chairman Paul Sealey said: “It went really well. More than 500 people attended and we gave away hundreds of awards.
“The future is bright. We have a high number of young players coming through with more than 50 children aged five to seven taking part.”
