In pictures: Hundreds take part in annual six-a-side tournament

Boys and girls of all ages got on their kit and boots for the annual six-a-side tournament held at Braywick Park in Maidenhead.

The tournament, held by Maidenhead Boys & Girls FC on the weekend, was played in sunshine after last year saw the second day called of because of rain.

More than 280 teams competed in the tournament over the two days with a total of 14 pitches being used to accommodate the fixtures.

Speaking from touchline, club secretary and tournament organiser Mike Smith said a lot of talent had been displayed this year.

"The football I have seen this weekend has been tremendous, we've got scouts down from Reading, Chelsea and Fulham so they have been keeping their eyes peeled,” he said.

"The turn-out has been great, we have sold out of every drink which shows how successful the weekend has been. It's been our busiest year since records began."

Teams from as far afield as Portsmouth and Banbury took part in the tournament with local teams also taking part.

Mike added: "Teams come here from all over the country because they know how competitive it is and we are hoping to have some teams from abroad taking part next year."
