Students from Inverell, Moree and Glen Innes showcased their skills at an AFL Secondary Schools Gala Day on Tuesday.
Held at Inverell’s sporting complex, the day consisted of U15s, youth girls and open boys from each school facing each other.
Warm weather conditions did not deter the students from giving their all on the field.
Along the way each team grew their skills and knowledge of the game, with a chance to be invited to the Sam Naismith Cup Finals held in Inverell in May.
Another two gala days will be held in Armidale and Tamworth prior to the final event.
