SOCCER: Hundreds of youngsters took to the Palm Drive Fields in the first round of the Football Central Queensland Gladstone soccer competition.

On a soggy Saturday, teams from Clinton, Calliope, Gladstone United, Central, Yaralla and BITS converged on the pitches to display an impressive brand of soccer.

The under-7 age group itself has 15 teams.

The youngest age group - under-5 - has 11 teams, under-8 has 13 teams. Under-12 to under-16 play for premierships points, but there's no doubt that these under-7 players play to win as well.
