Parson Drove were narrowly beaten 1-0 by Dersingham in the final of the under-nines competition on Sunday while the under-10s final also came down to a nail-biting finale, but Downham Market eventually beat Wisbech St Mary Purples in a sudden death penalty shoot-out.

The Saints were however victorious in the under-11 final when they beat Hungate Rovers and Woottons A beat their B team 1-0 in the final of the under-13 competition.

Hungate Greens took the honours in the under-14 final on Saturday thanks to a 1-0 win over Downham Market B.

Sunday's under-15 final was contested by East Lynn Blues' A and B teams and it was the A side who eventually won 4-0.

Hungate Rovers Yellows under-15 girls came back from 1-0 down to beat Clenchwarton in their final.
