Tom Gayle

BBC Get Inspired reporter at the venues

A quick free-kick proves pivotal in the match between Gosport Borough and Crystal Palace Ladies Development.

The ball's shifted to the right and a well-directed finish proves the winner. 3-2 to Gosport.


We asked for your team selfies, and this one is top!

A fabulous goal here from  Crystal Palace Ladies Development.

Winning the ball back close to their own goal, slick passing takes them straight up the other end to draw level, making it Palace 2 Gosport Borough LFC 2.

Celebrations that will bowl you over!

Pan United  celebrate their 7-1 victory against  Laverstock and Ford Ladies  taking them into the next knockout round at the FA People's Cup semi-final.

Norton and Stockton pounce

Hall Road Rangers' goalkeeper is punished - feeling her momentum is about to take her out of the area after grabbing a rebound, she drops the ball and Norton and Stockton Ancients striker Sam seizes on it to put her side 2-0 ahead. 

Norton have already won two games despite an injury to their captain Vicki, who went over on her ankle.   

An extremely local derby...


BWFC and BWFC Blues from Birmingham are used to playing side-by-side...but not against each other!

In fact, they've had to wear green bibs to tell each other apart!

As they say, their People's Cup journey will continue in the final next month in Birmingham, win that and they'll lift the FA People's Cup trophy at Wembley during the FA Cup Final.

Injury to Pan United

There has been an injury here at Bristol in the women's category.

Pan United 's star defender Ria has been subbed from the game after a painful tackle from the opposition, Pen Mill. 

Beaminster's historical beef

Some of our walking footballers might describe themselves as ancient, but none quite boasts the historical background of Beaminster Wanderers , who number among them Richard Balson, proprietor of the longest-running family business in Britain.

How old? 200 years? Older. 300? Older. 400?!

Nope - try 502 years . Before Shakespeare. Before Queen Elizabeth I.

Balson & Son Butchers  in Bridport was established in 1515, opening a high-street shop in 1535. Now, 25 generations later...

Having helped Beaminster qualify for the semi-finals, Richard is unfortunately injured and won't be playing today, but we trust he's sent the lads on their way with best wishes, and maybe the odd meat pie...?  

Argyle level it up

In the walking football in Bristol, Plymouth Argyle FC  make it 1-1 against Droitwich Spa Vets FC with this tidy turn and shot into the corner.

Gareth Southgate should be giving Finesse Academy Under-13s a call.

Two penalty shoot-out wins in one tournament? Unheard of on these shores.


Tom Gayle

BBC Get Inspired reporter at the venues

It's been an eventful day for the  Finesse Academy U13s  goalkeeper. 

He's had to face 11 different penalties en route to becoming the Under-14 champions. This save in the semi-final shoot-out against Wimbledon Elite was my favourite. 

Winners in Wimbledon!

So after penalty shoot-out victories in the quarter-final and semi-final, here are your Wimbledon Under-14 winners!

Finesse Academy Under-13  beat  WHU Kicks  4-2 in the final.
