Watch the best of the action from Sunderland's Russell Foster Youth Leagues
Young footballers have warmed spectators' hearts by parading their full array of skills during the winter weather.
Our photographers, as usual, were also on hand to capture the best of the action from the latest round of Russell Foster Youth Leagues fixtures.
Full match reports and more pictures will appear in Saturday's Sunderland Echo.
In the meantime, you can buy copies of these and all our photographs by logging on here.
