KNIGHTON Town Football Club hosted the last tournament of the Under-Eight season last weekend.
Bryn-Y-Castell, home of the Radnor Robins, turned out to be a great stage for future Central Wales football stars for a fun and friendly day of competition.
The festival was the last under-eight festival to be held in the Powys this season after a successful event held in Llanidloes last month.
The festivals have been well supported as clubs, coaches and players welcome a return to the pitch after nearly two years due to the ongoing global national health crisis which has severely affected sport in most countries.
With the easing of restrictions across Wales, the return of youth football festivals has been warmly welcomed.
Last weekend Knighton Town, Llanidloes Town, Llanfair United, Welshpool Town, Rhayader Town and Newtown all sent teams to east Radnorshire for the latest junior festival as the club continue their gradual return to competition.
The festivals are held on a non-competitive basis, but all players have had another chance to put on their shoes and represent their home clubs against their rivals.
The level of play was high throughout the day and enjoyed by all participants.
More festivals are expected to take place next month and it is hoped that even more players and clubs will participate.
