THE Biloela Valleys Football grounds were in full use last weekend as junior soccer kicked off for the season.

There were 20 games played across the five fields with plenty of eager young faces.

Junior Valleys Football Club president Phil Surman said it should be a good season.

"Overall the games today have gone really well,” he said.

"Hopefully we get a good season, lots of games that are well spread out.”

Each field had an array of friends and family cheering the players and the canteen was in full swing.

"The attendance has been good for the first game of the season,” Phil said.

"Good attendance from all the teams and family support.”

The soccer teams for the season this year include the two Biloela teams, Valleys and Callide and Monto and Moura.

"We've got games in Monto and Moura as well so it is spread out across the Banana Shire,” Phil said.

With a few new additions to some team names, there are some classic names from the Under 12 Meerkats to the Under nine Willy Wagtails and Under six Mickey Mouses, Snoopys and Teddy Bears.

"I like the names, I think they are creative and inventive,” Phil said with a laugh.
