Hundreds of football prospects from across the region descended on March last weekend for March Rangers’ annual tournament.
Over 70 teams took part in the six-a-side competition, with talents competing in under 7, 8, 9 and 10 age groups.
The youngest age group played non-competitive matches but the older groups went head-to-head in knockout groups, with Isleham winning the under 8 category, Pinchbeck clinching the under 9 title and Deeping taking the under 10 trophy.
Joanne Kent, who helped organise the tournament, said: “The tournament was once again hugely successful with many local companies kindly sponsoring the event and a team of volunteers comprising of players, parents and managers helping throughout the weekend.
“Feedback from manager and players that took part was extremely positive, with many saying how much they enjoyed playing a variety of different teams and they all loved the competitiveness that was shown.
