HEREFORDSHIRE Junior Premier League have held two football festivals.

Pegasus, Lads Club, Bromyard, Ross Juniors all attended, as well as Cinderford, Broadwell and Llanfoist.

The aim was for the Regional Talent Centre, based at St Weonards, to strengthen their squads ahead of the third season in the JPL and second as a RTC.

They will have seven age ranges competing next season from under-7 to under-14s.

"Playing in the JPL at these young ages will only help develop local talent so as when these boys are 16 plus, they will hopefully be pushing to play for our top teams locally and even further as some have already proved," said JPL spokesman Andy Bevan."

More festivals will be held soon.
