The Teesside Junior Football Alliance is Europe's largest junior football league with 550 teams participating each weekend.

Close to 8,000 young footballers take part, ranging from eight to 18 years old.

BBC Tees' Ali Brownlee speaks to one team a week on his Thursday evening show.

Once a month he hands out a Recognition Award to one volunteer who's done the most for their team that month.

Thursday, October 28 - Middleton Rangers

Middleton Rangers have been going for seven years and were the first Club in Darlington, and one of the first in the TJFA, to attain the FA Charter Standard status.

They have 16 Teams playing in five different Leagues with the majority (9 of them) competing in the TJFA.

TJFA's Chris Ord said, "The Club has more then 40 adult volunteers, without who they wouldn't be able to exist as a Club.

"Amongst them, a special mention must go to the Committee as they have the thankless task of running the Club, especially Mark Hunter for his development work and the inauguration of the 'mini-Rangers'."
