Party bag/alternatives for 9 year old football party

DS is turning 9 next month and having a party at a football centre, with his whole football team plus some friends from school.

I've been looking at doing football themed party bags but lots of the fillers seem quite babyish (stickers, temporary tatoos) or just lots of plastic tat so I was looking for alternatives. When DS went to a party at this place, he was given a football instead of a party bag, which I thought was great but that's kind of been done now!

Would a copy of the most recent Match of the Day magazine plus a slice of the birthday cake be acceptable? Any other great ideas? I was a bit tempted by a couple of packets of Match Attax but if people aren't collecting them yet, I could make myself very unpopular! grin

A football comic / magazine would be a great idea, my son loves those. They are a bit expensive though if you have to buy loads.

What about a football themed flash drive? You can get them on eBay.

Sports water bottle might do, especially if you could find one with footballs on!

What about a football - sports direct or decathlon do them about £2-3 could get one each and a bag of sweeties keep it simple ?

I did drinks bottles filled with sweets one year. Magazine would be amazing but v expensive. Cheap football? I tied a whistle round the top bought on ebay a big pack.
