Primary schools in Whittlesey held a festival of girls’ football funded by the Burnt House Wind Farm Fund.
The funding has led to a season-long series of football-related activities organised by the Peterborough & Fenland Referee Development Scheme.
The latest event saw Alderman Jacobs, Coates, New Road and Park Lane participate at New Road.
The hosts supplied team mascots, leading out the squads Olympic style and the match officials.
Organiser Robert Windle said: “We were grateful to the FA and First Media who supplied a fantastic amount of Respect t-shirts and other gifts and all the medals were provided from the grant funding that we received.”
