    Local boys CS Colts score a slick breakaway goal but suffered a 4-2 loss at the hands of Sproatley Juniors who were the deserved winners in this round-robin Under-14 Boys match.

    A classy drag back from number four, David Silva-esque through ball to split open the defence and Harry Kane accuracy with the finish. 

    CS Colts, top work.

    Hello there! 

    How are the nerves? Excited? We are and we're just writing about it.

    The nation's biggest five-a-side competition started back in February, then we had the regional semi-finals last month where 96 teams qualified for the grand final.

    Over the next two days those teams head to Birmingham, battling it out for two things money can't buy - eternal FA People's Cup glory and the chance to lift the trophy at Wembley Stadium.

    That's right, the winners will lift their trophy at half-time during the FA Cup final between Chelsea and Arsenal in May.

    Now get why we're excited?

  13. Post update

    Over 6,000 teams started the competition.

    Now we're left with the 96 teams who have qualified for the finals.

    The winners of each category will lift their trophy at Wembley.

    Who will it be? Let's find out.

    It's time* for the FA People's Cup Finals 2017.

    *Said in a dramatic voice like the XFactor guy.
