This year’s Costessey summer tournament has been the biggest yet, with 122 boys’ football teams competing over the weekend, the organisers said.
The third annual event featured teams from under sevens to under 14s and was organised by Kevin Thompson and Costessey Sports Club chairman Alastair Kerridge, and held at Longwater Lane recreation ground.
Mr Thompson said: “On Saturday we had 58 teams competing and we had 64 today. The weather was kind to us with lots of glorious sunshine. Loads of people came to the event on each day to watch.
“The burgers are all gone and we had to get extra supplies of soft drinks in as it was so warm.
“This is the biggest event so far, with the most teams ever. Each year it gets bigger. We have also had Norwich City scouts here which has given it a good vibe.”
Other attractions at the event, which was held to raise money for club funds, included a tombola, penalty kick competition and stalls.
