It has been another exciting and eventful sporting year throughout Falkirk and further afield.
And as always, the Falkirk Herald, and its sister titles, have been there to capture those moments - the good, the bad and the downright odd! - that have mattered in sport during 2017.
Of course, that includes unrivalled coverage of the fortunes of Falkirk FC, and it’s fair to say that 2017 has been a rollercoaster ride for the Bairns.
In this slideshow, images editor Michael Gillen has compiled some of his favourite photographs from Falkirk games during 2017, as well as a few from other teams and events in the area, as we take a final look back at the year.
