  5. Thanks to the volunteers!


    The FA People's Cup wouldn't be possible without the help of amazing volunteers.

    Just like this wonderful group from a local club who have volunteered their time to help out at the finals today.

    Excellent work guys!

  6. 'Football's football at the end of the day'

    BBC Get Inspired reporter in Birmingham

    Referee Rob Parker tells us what it's like switching from playing to refereeing.

    I get the impression he'd rather be kicking balls than blowing his whistle!

    Tempted to join in, Trev?!

  10. Wokingham walk through to the final!

  11. Joy for Wokingham


    Wokingham UB50

    Wokingham won through in one of the most fiercely contested finals of the day, in a Walking Football final that saw the day's only sin bin and plenty of passion. 

    And they certainly celebrated with passion afterwards as well. Well-deserved mind.

    Enjoy you success lads!

  12. HIGHLIGHTS - Liberties defend title

    Male Veterans final

    Liberties Vets and Harraby took centre stage on the finals pitch for the final of the Male Vets category.

    So earlier on this afternoonWokingham UB50 took on Leeds Titans in the final of the Walking Football category.

    With a trip to Wembley up for grabs, it's all got very competitive.

    Watch out for the ref reaching for his pocket to pull out a... blue card!? (We've checked the official rules, and this means a 2-minute time-out).

    Wokingham came from behind to win it. Watch all of the goals in the video above.

  15. Post update

    Well that's it! All eight of today's finals have been completed.

    Don't go anywhere though. We have got the highlights from the last four finals of the day coming right up.

  16. Post update

    Also on the Filthy Fellas roster was a gent called Abdi, who was sporting an Arsenal shirt. 

    He's never seen his club live. Now he'll have tickets to see them in the FA Cup final at Wembley.

    You couldn't write it.


    Pathetico 1-3 Filthy Fellas

    It is!

    Filthy Fellas are led to victory by a goal and an assist by a man who has the audacity to call himself Messi.

    Messi, Filthy - they'll have to brush up smart in May because they'll be taking a trip to Wembley in May.

  18. GOAL - All over?

    Pathetico 1-3 Filthy Fellas

    What a tasty little finish this is!

    Messi with the assist, then another Filthy Fella - who isn't conveniently wearing a football shirt for me to dub him with a nickname - dribbles past his man and scores.

    Is that the final act?

  19. GOAL - MESSI

    Pathetico 1-2 Filthy Fellas

    Did I dare to question the powers of Messi?

    You can't keep players like that quiet for long. He beats his man and slots Thierry Henry-like across the goal.


    Pathetico 1-1 Filthy Fellas

    It seems like Messi is actually being called Messi by his teammates... Anyway, Messi's touch lets him down in front of goal. Not often you can type that.

    It's all Filthy Fellas now though, and the Pathetico 'keeper is forced to tip brilliantly onto his bar.
