Bream Bay United Football Club's under-16 team are sitting on top of their table – although they've struggled for players.
"We almost didn't manage to get a team together," said coach Ken Andrews. "They just managed to get 11 players together to make up a team.
"On Saturdays If I can't scrounge up a substitute for the game, we play with 11 and have played with 10 on the field."
Most of the team's players also play in the Bream Bay College 1st XI, and some go on to a second game on Saturday for the Bream Bay men's team.
