IT WAS a slow start to the season for the Woodburn Wolves this year thanks to copious amounts of wet weather.
Many teams didn't get their first game in until the third week.
This has changed, however, with the brilliant sunshine that autumn has blessed the Northern Rivers with.
In the junior teams, many young players are taking the field for the first time.
Junior Wolves representative Tracey Cummings said there were still places for any boys or girls wanting to play soccer this year.
"We have two teams in the under-9s and they are both looking for players," she said.
"Be aware though, that if you come with a friend you may be playing on different teams."
Ms Cummings said the under-11s were really struggling for players and encouraged any young person around that age to get involved.
Teams such as the under-8s have seen a surge of players which Ms Cummings said was great news.
"It's a really great team this year as they have substitutes as well," she said.
"Last year we only had five on that team."
All junior teams will play at home this Saturday, May 26, and the club will be holding a sausage sizzle.
"We are looking for a couple of dedicated people to staff the barbeque and cook the sausages and onions for the day," she said.
"Kids love to get a sausage sandwich after their game, so we thought it would be something different."
