The biggest five-a-side competition in the country reached a thrilling conclusion in Birmingham on Sunday.

The third edition of The FA People's Cup, which attracted a record number of players (45,000) and teams (6,000), showcased the very best in small-sided football in the first of two days of finals action.

There were trophies up for grabs in eight different categories – and there was plenty of excitement along the way.

Kingston Select were the first winners of the afternoon, in the U14 Girls category, as they defeated Elita 5s 4-2 in the final.

They were quickly followed by Sproatley Juniors who won the U14 Boys category in dramatic fashion. They drew 4-4 with Rovers FC before edging their opponents 4-3 on penalties.

Cedarsfield romped to a 7-1 win over Bromley Green Valiants in the Youth Disability final while Aston Villa were comfortable 4-0 victors over Aylestone Park in the Female Disability category.

The Walking Football title went to a jubilant Wokingham UB50 courtesy of a 3-1 defeat of Leeds Titans.

Filthy Fellas were triumphant in the Higher Education Male category, with Wockey FC beating Nottingham Medics on penalties in the Female category after an incredible 3-3 draw.

Meanwhile unbeaten Liberties Vets won the Veterans Male title for the second year in a row.

The FA People’s Cup concludes on Bank Holiday Monday with the finals of the remaining eight categories.
