By the Middle Ages, football was well established as a popular sport and much more attention was given to the actual making of the ball. Animal bladders were the most common material used for making footballs in Medieval Europe, the pig's bladder was favoured by the Italians in the 1600s.

Our youngest son is extremely passionate about football and plays for our local under twelves football team. Last year he was one of the boys chosen to play in the football trials for Swansea Juniors. Unfortunately he wasn't picked, although they did give him tips on how to up his game. One of the tips was to practice longer and harder. He is so determined that he practices whenever possible, which means he gets through footballs at a fair old rate, so I was delighted to be able to review the Mitre Kids Malmo Training Football.

Mitre is the world's oldest football brand and for nearly 200 years Mitre have been unrivalled in their innovations for football.

The ball arrived deflated which wasn't a problem, it was easily pumped up using our Mitre football pump. Once inflated the size 5 football looked good with its 18 panels in orange with splashes of black and yellow. It is made from high density PVC that keeps its shape well and can be used on grass, AstroTurf and most other surfaces.

As soon as our son came home from school, he grabbed the football and shot straight back out of the door to play football over the park with his mates.

Fast forward a couple of hours and enter one very muddy child and football. The football was easy to clean but not so easy the child.

My boy was thrilled with the performance of the ball, he said it felt incredibly tough, durable and powerful, so much so that he was able to score a couple of goals … mmm (well that's my son's theory anyway.

So that's that then, a great training football from a great brand and ... one happy and satisfied child.

Bought this Mitre Malmo ball for my 7 year old son to practice his footie skills. He was delighted when he received it, he loves the bright orange colour and thinks it looks cool. Good size 4 ball for his age. Only had for a short while so cant comment too much on the longevity yet, but so far so good and he has taken it to park to kick about with friends a few times and its surviving well at the moment and his friends all think it looks cool and want one too.

See above. I mean, a football's a football isn't it. The only difference really is in the colour and what the writing on it says.
