Young Footballers tackle Tournament
Schools in Franklin took part in the Franklin Schools Football Tournament on Thursday 25 May. A record 62 teams took place, the most so far. 
Year three and four students participated in the event, and while there was plenty of fog, that didn't stop the youngsters from having a go.
Muddy shoes, wet socks and grassy shins were a sign of a day well-played. 
Here are the initial results from the tournament. For more photos, visit The Post Newspaper on Facebook
