A poster competition has been launched in Brandon to help encourage dog walkers to clear up after their pets.
Coaches and volunteers from Brandon Town Community Football Club have said there is an issue with dogs mess on the Remembrance Playing Fields.
Before the youth matches and training sessions, the pitches have to be checked to make sure they are mess free.
Young footballers have been handing out dog bags, donated by Jollyes Pet Superstore in Thetford, to walkers. They have been aided by Police Community Support Officers from Suffolk Constabulary.
They will also be handed out during training sessions.
