A children's football club created during lockdown has had its first training session in Browney, County Durham.
The 19 budding players at Browney FC have been practising in their gardens and watching online tutorials. They are now able to take part in socially distanced sessions, in line with grassroots guidelines from the Football Association.
The team was created by Graham Gellatly, a 41-year-old Project and Development Manager from County Durham, and two others. They wanted to give families in the area something to look forward to post-lockdown. They came up with the idea to create a football club for Browney and Browney FC was born.
Graham says this new venture is for the whole family, not just the children!
Browney FC has FA affiliation and a new strip on the way.
They hope to put their skills to practise in the league in September.
