Adult Female final

The last final of the came around so quickly, don't you think!?

It might be late in the day, but for the ladies from Plymouth and Norton and Stockton Ancients, their spotlight moment was still to come.

Plymouth opened the scoring with some good pressing but Norton were quick on their heels to equalise.

The remainder of the game was tense (we were on the edge of our seats here!), but in the end, it was Plymouth who stole the victory after a deflected shot won it.

Excellent sportsmanship, even better goals! Well done ladies! 

Watch the highlights here.

KO5 faced Woolpack United in a match that saw few goals, but many epic saves from both keepers.

It's one to watch for any aspiring goalies out there!

Disability Premiership final

The last final of the disability categories was a blinder! 

The Premiership finalists, Exeter City and South Tyneside Ability DFC were defintely up for the challenge; but it was Exeter who took an early lead with a bullet of a shot.

The rest of the game saw a sublime long-range left-footed strike and a counter attack that any Premier League club would be proud of.

Tyneside did get one back, but it was too late for them, and Exeter secured a 4-1 victory.

Female Vets final

Earlier on Hackney Jurassics defended their 2016 People's Cup title with a 2-0 victory over fellow veterans, Armley FC.

It was a cagey first half with both teams struggling to hold the ball- but it was Hackney who forced their way through to open the scoring.

Watch this goal and all the highlights from the game here!

The Norton striker has her back and lays the ball off to an onrushing defender who fires home smartly.

With this being the last final, there is a healthy crowd watching the game. Still even though. The last final of the day won't go to penalties, will it?

Straight from the kick-off Norton equalise, firing low beneath the goalkeeper.

Womens finals

Plymouth narrowly won the game between these two in the group stage. How will this out pan out? 

Both teams have an effort on goal early on but they fly wide.

Hats off (literally - her cap fell off halfway through) - to Norton goalkeeper Rachel, who made a string of fine saves to keep her side ahead against Liverpool and reach the Adult Females final.

As all that Adult Male final was going on, the Adult Female semi-finals were being played.

'What happened?' I hear you ask. Well...

That was a great match. Plenty of skill on show. The victorious Woolpack are currently being interviewed on the pitch by BBC presenter Nick Bright. You'll be able to see that interview in our People's Cup highlights show on 27 May in the build-up to the FA Cup final. 

Woolpack might miss it, however. Like all of our winners. They'll be at that final and will lift their trophy at half-time.

Full-time - Woolpack win

KO5 1-2 Woolpack United

Victory for Woolpack in the Adult Male final!

The outfield players embrace on the pitch. I think you need to go and hug your 'keeper lads, he was brilliant.


KO5 1-2 Woolpack United

Yet another brilliant save from the Woolpack goalkeeper. He gets a pat on the back from a teammate. If they win this, he has played a HUGE part.


KO5 1-2 Woolpack United

Into the closing stages. Woolpack have a chance to settle it but the shot is saved by KO5's goalkeeper's legs.

'Use your head!'

KO5 1-2 Woolpack United

KO5 head coach provides words of wisdom to his substitute player, number 11.

KO5 head coach


KO5 1-2 Woolpack United

Woolpack look good going forward but they also have an excellent goalkeeper. He has just kept them ahead with a diving stop to keep out a powerful drive from KO5.

GOAL - Woolpack restore lead

KO5 1-2 Woolpack United

Tidy stuff this. One attacker was trapped against the sideboards but fashioned a backheel to the edge of the area for a teammate to thump into the net. 2-1 about five minutes into this 10 minute match.

GOAL - KO5 level

KO5 1-1 Woolpack United

It doesn't harm their shooting though. KO5 get a deserved equaliser, unleashing a powerful shot from distance.

KO5 0-1 Woolpack United

KO5 are keeping calm, not unsettled by that early goal and still trying to get into their passing rhythm The majority of the team are wearing some very tight bottoms.
