ONE hundred and twenty teams took part in the seventh annual five-a-side football tournament in Chatteris at the weekend.

Boys and girls, from six to 15, came from all over East Anglia to play at Peacock's Paddock on Saturday and Sunday.

Chatteris U10 girls won their tournament and will be playing league football next season. The U12 Chatteris girls were beaten in the final by Clenchwarton.

In the boys' matches, Chatteris U10 Orange A went all the way to a penalty shoot-out to win their tournament on Sunday against a strong Ramsey team. Unfortunately they had to play against the other Chatteris Orange team in the semi-final.

Chatteris Orange U9s went all season without losing a game and carried this form into the tournament to become winners.

Chatteris U11s, who played in the Tiger squad, reached the quarter-final in their group and won 1-0. The semi-final was a game too far and they were beaten 2-0 by Ramsey, who went on to lift the trophy.
