Some of Wagga's youngest footy fans dressed in their teams' colours on September 3 for a good cause.
Staff and children at TAFE Gumnut Cottage children's centre wore their football jerseys ahead of DonateLife's Jersey Day on September 4, to raise awareness of organ donation in Australia.
Charlie Sharrock, 3, came to day care wearing a small version of his father's football jersey.
"It's my daddy's," Charlie said.
His father Brayden Sharrock is a Group 9 rugby league player for the Wagga Brothers.
Charlie said he liked football and his family supports the Brisbane Broncos in the NRL.
Leo Manwaring, 5, said he wasn't sure why the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs were his favourite team, but he liked to watch the games at home with his family.

Leo said he had been looking forward to wearing his jersey to day care.
"My favourite part is seeing my friends," he said.
Gumnut Cottage director Kristie Pitt said the day was about promoting awareness of the organ and tissue authority and the DonateLife network.
"And after all the negative parts of dealing with COVID-19, this is something the children can enjoy and look forward to," she said.
"It's really important ... It brings ordinary, everyday life."
Health department figures show Australia's organ and tissue donation rate has more than doubled in recent years, but 1,700 people are currently waiting for a transplant.
