It was quite the opening day for the new Swift Current Minor Football League.

The first ever minor football games were played yesterday up at Highland Park featuring both the Bantam and Pee Wee divisions.

Six games in total took to the field between 1pm and 6pm.  Parents packed the sidelines to get a glimpse of the first ever action.

All players, coaches and organizers should be commended for a solid opening day which featured some great play-making and competitive action.  More games are planned for next Sunday.  The season runs into mid-October.
