19 photos of youth football teams who battled it out on the pitches in Blackpool during the noughties

It was all about team spirit, the magic of the game, proud parents and, of course, hopes of smashing one in the back of the net.

There are 19 photos here which show youth football teams from across the Blackpool area during the decade of the noughties. They range from the under 11s to the under 17s. The kids pictured in the team line-ups would be in their mid twenties upwards now, possibly stood on the sidelines in all weathers watching their own children play - with hopes of some memorable moments. Do you recognise any faces?
