Sadly we've come to the end of our FA People's Cup round one weekend coverage.

There are still a handful of matches going on out there so good luck to those of you still playing.

What a weekend it has been.

We've had record-breaking numbers, great laughs, smiles and plenty of brilliant football.

Don't forget to watch next weekend's highlights show. It could be like watching yourself on Match of the Day!

A big shout out from us to all of the organisers, referees and team taxi drivers.

Until the regional semi-finals on 24, 25, 26 March, that is all from us. Goodbye!

Deportivo win!

You'll be able to see that interview on Saturday 4 March at 13:00 GMT in the highlights show on the BBC Red Button.

Here's one they made earlier...

Wonderful goal in a previous round from Deportivo. Their celebrations are even better as they do 'the Ronaldo'!

Score like Ronaldo, celebrate like Ronaldo

Deportivo take the lead again. 

Lovely finish. The forward beats his man and cooly finds the bottom corner.

A£89 million have it all to do again. There are just minutes left.

GOAL - Deportivo Lackovtalent 2-2 A£89 million

Tom Gayle

BBC Get Inspired reporter at the venues

What a game!

It looked to over for A£89 million but they've keep at it. Two quick goals and we're all level.

GOAL - Deportivo Lackovtalent 2-0 A£89 million

It had been coming.

Deportivo  score twice in 30 seconds. It could have been three in a minute if not for the heroics of the A£89 million 'keeper.

Cagey opening

Deportivo Lackovtalent 0-0 A£89 million

Tom Gayle

BBC Get Inspired reporter at the venues

Early stages and Deportivo have all of the ball. No goals yet but lack of talent certainly look the most threatening.

We've got something a little special coming up for you. 

Tom, our reporter Birmingham, is pitch side of the Adult Male final between Deportivo Lackovtalent and A£89 million .

He's going to give us minute-by-minute coverage of what's going on...

CEFC win in shoot-out

Tom Gayle

BBC Get Inspired reporter at the venues

Drama here in the second round. The two teams can't be separated in normal time so we go to a sudden death penalty shoot out. 

The  Yung Draco Soldiers  player won't want to watch this back. 

He blazes his penalty over the bar,  CEFC  keep their heads to book their place in the quarter-finals.

Crossbar challenge

Yesterday you saw our reporter Tom having a go at the crossbar challenge .

We can't be sure how many takes Tom took but whilst they were waiting for their quarter-final match these guys only got one shot each! 

Well done for stepping up to the challenge Supreme Ballers .

It's not easy!

Round-up from Reading

Jessie Aru-Phillips

BBC Get Inspired reporter at the venues

There are 42 teams competing in the Adult Male category in Reading today.  

RG4orce  and Pinewood Old Boys  played one of the first matches, with Pinewood winning 4-1. 

The orange wearing  Hungry Hippos  were on a winning streak early on. They won their first game 8-0 against  West Swindies  and their second 4-0 against  Bamfica , not for the hard efforts of their opponents.


This is impressive.

I think Ryan has started a competition here.

How many press-ups with a football on your back can you do?

Semi-final line-up

More news from Doncaster.

In the quarter-finals, Bottesford beat Newlands, Bulldog Boys came out on top against TNF, Exeter knocked out Pique Blinders and Newbold beat SLOT.

The semi-final  line-up is as follows...

  • Bottesford v Exeter 
  • Newbold v Bulldog Boys  

Don't forget to thank the staff!

We're all understandably focused on the teams competing this weekend, but don't forget it couldn't happen without the hard work of staff and volunteers at centres across the UK - reffing, cleaning, admin-ing and generally making it all happen.

Check out this great keepy-uppy vid from Goals Liverpool North . Have it!
