    #FAPeoplesCup

    Players during the 2019 FA People's Cup first round

    I think that dancing is the perfect way for us to the end of the live text for today.

    A well done to all those who took part, regardless of whether you won or lost.

    The FA People's Cup is the best example of how football can be such an inclusive sport and bring people together.

    Join us from 10:00 GMT tomorrow, with the Adult Male Premiership, Championship, League and Youth Disability categories playing in the morning.

    In the afternoon, it's the turn of the Adult Male teams.

    We'll catch up on anything we may have missed this evening in Sunday's coverage. So, in the meantime, you can continue the conversation - letting us know how you've got on or are preparing for Sunday's action - with the #FAPeoplesCup hashtag on social media.

    And a reminder that there'll be a first-round highlights programme on the Red Button and online on Saturday, 2 March.

    Mr T saved the vital penalty in the semi final.

    The name Mr T is in loving memory of their friend Trevor who sadly passed away in July 2018.

    Mr T

    They are certainly happy.

    Check out these dance moves!

    And over in Manchester, Rockerdale have won the Adult Female category with a 2-0 victory over FC United of Manchester.

    FC United went all the way and won the 2018 Adult Female trophy, but it's not to be this year.

    Chesterton Crusaders

    Chesterton Crusaders have beat Holmes Chapel Ramblers 6-2 in the Walking Football final to reach the next stage.

    It wasn't without its controversial moments as the ref orders a re-take on a penalty, but it's duly dispatched to give Crusaders victory.

  8. GOAL

    If I was the Port Vale FC manager I’d be tearing my hair out.

    The defence stood ball watching as they think the initial shot is above head height. Referee confirms it was lower than six foot so play on.

    Holmes Chapel Ramblers take full advantage with plenty of time to find the net.

  11. Update - Poppy's mum in in the semis

    We saw earlier how excited Poppy and her mum were for even getting in the Women's Walking Football team for the FA People's Cup (see 10:33).

  12. A derby in the potteries

    Port Vale v Stoke

    Stoke v Port Vale clashes are always feisty and this one is no exception.

    Port Vale equalise with a well-placed finish after a short free-kick - how much space did Stoke want to give him though!

    Video content

    Video caption: Long-range free-kick from Port Vale FC

    Never touched him ref!

    Stoke City ensure they have a clear sight of goal by literally shoving the Port Vale defender out of the way.

    The goal was disallowed much to the Stoke man's dismay, but it didn’t affect the score as they went on to win 6-4.

    We told you earlier about the East London Little Ladies dad's team (see 15:42).

    The daughters convinced their dads to take part and take the training sessions too.

    Here they are enjoying their People's Cup experience in Shoreditch.

    Only nine of us turned up for my first session but really enjoyed it - although finding it difficult not to run after the ball.

    Since then the club has grown in strength and we have a regular turn out of 24 players every Thursday evening.

    l, and some other Brickfield players, went for trials for the Wales Walking Football side, which had only just been formed and all got in the squad.

    Two months later l and two team-mates were selected to play in Wales’s first international game at Barry against England - who would have thought at 60 l’d be playing international football?!

    I’m so pleased l’m able to carry on playing the sport l love, apart from a fitness and health point of view, you meet some amazing people and characters.

    Our goalkeeper is a gentleman called Paul Davies from South Wales and when not playing he is the Reverend Paul Davies - nearly 70 years old!

    He keeps telling his team-mates we’ve got an extra man playing with us (the good Lord himself) - not sure what position he plays though!

    I’d recommend this Walking Football activity to everyone.

    Is that within the rules? Good luck in Chester guys!

  16. GREAT SAVE!

    This keeper will take some beating!

    The Options Vets goalie comes to his attackers rescue. Fancy footwork leads to TNF being clean through on goal but look up "make yourself big" in the football dictionary and you’ll see a picture of this.
