Primary school teams took to the pitches of St Clements this week, to battle it out for trophies.
Bringing over teams from across the UK, organisers hope to improve the standard of the up and coming football stars of the Island.
It is the 38th year for the Jersey Festival of Primary School Football, which invites teams from across the UK to take on Jersey sides.
The youngsters show just as much energy as their adult counterparts, even when the games get a little rough, but it's all in the name of improvement.
Pat Cullinane, Secretary of Jersey Primary Schools Division, said: "One of the reasons why we started it many years ago was because we were isolated, of course, whereas in the UK you have got competition from all over the country.
"So the important thing was to get sides over here so our lads could improve their standard of play and that's exactly what has happened.
"Our boys have the opportunity to play against the best in the country, and that is a wonderful opportunity."
And with competition like Michael Owen and Theo Walcott, who played on the FB Fields pitches when they were 11, theres a strong chance these boys could one day be playing for their country too.
