Over 2,000 youngsters from over 230 teams take part in Foundation’s annual football tournament
The sun was out in full force as the Community Sports Foundation (CSF)’s 19th annual Summer Cup was played out at Easton & Otley College over the weekend.
Over 2,000 players from over 230 teams took part in the tournament.
Barely a cloud broke the blue sky across the two days, though the hot temperatures threw up some challenging playing conditions for the youngsters.
Not that it mattered for Aylsham FC’s U12s. The side have dominated their age group since their first outing in 2015, and, once again, they made it a remarkable four consecutive Summer Cup trophy wins out of four with success on Saturday.
In the U14 section, Old Catton – winners back in 2016 – added to their trophy cabinet following a nail-biting penalty shoot out against Mulbarton FC.
Also collecting a second tournament win following success in 2016, were Firside Athletic U13s who saw off Sprowston in the final.
Across the younger age groups at the tournament, the silverware was won by clubs new to Summer Cup success.
On the Sunday, Holt United U9s won the tournament’s youngest age category, with tournament regulars Horsford winning the U11 section following a closely contested final against Thorpe Rovers.
Finally, Feltwell won the U10 section, managing to finish the tournament unbeaten, despite the best efforts of Attleborough in the final.
