TO CELEBRATE all the talented sporty children across Worcestershire, the Worcester News plans to start regularly publishing pictures of the youngsters in action.

Our photographers will be out taking pictures of various youth sport teams – football, rugby, cricket, netball, hockey, athletics, gymnastics, swimming and more – and we'll be publishing the best images in the newspaper and online.

Of course, we won't be able to attend every single team's matches, which is why we're appealing for pictures from parents, coaches, spectators or amateur photographers who want to see their images in the newspaper and online – and seen by tens of thousands of people – with their name published to credit them.

We're looking for team photos before the match as well as action shots, and just the name of the club or clubs involved. There's no need to send us the names of the children involved.

Our aim is to showcase our county's thriving youth sport scene and give youngsters the chance to see themselves in the paper and on our website.

If you're involved in youth sport and want us to cover your team, or you can send us pictures, please email Michael Purton at
