  6. Inventive team names...

    We've seen some brilliant and truly inventive team names throughout the FA People's Cup. Here are some of our favourites playing today:

    Grumpy Old Men - This veterans team played in Bristol North today. They came second in their category - hopefully that has put a smile on your faces.

    Is your Motherwell and Tekkerslovaia - Playing in Dudley this afternoon in the Adult Male category. They can't both emerge victorious but we love the names.

    Skills 2 Pay Bills - We have two teams with this name playing today, an U14 Girls team in Luton and an U14 Boys team in Shoreditch. We certainly hope you've been showing them off on the pitch today.

    Warsash Wasps - Try saying that 5 times fast! This U16 Girls team is played in Reading today - and we'll be seeing them play again at the final. Well done!

    Total Shambles - You can't be that much of a shambles, you've already made it to the semi-finals. Good luck in your matches in the Adult Males category this afternoon.

    BBC Get Inspired's Chris Whyatt from Reading: What a final! Warsash Wasps beat Sandhurst Sloths... eventually. It went to extra time - then penalties - then sudden death. So competitive, but played in a very friendly atmosphere. Brought a lump to the throat.

    We're wrapping up the filming from Reading after a great day here. Thanks also to the brilliant BBC School Report team, Josh and Jack from Reading School.

  16. Warsash Wasps buzzing for semi-finals

    Warsash Wasps Girls are another of the teams tackling the Under-16 girls competition at Goals Reading today.

    They usually play 9-a-side in the Winchester and District Girls football league.

    "The girls all love playing football and when I suggested that we play in the FA People's Cup they were very enthusiastic," says manager Paul Hammond, whose daughter is part of the side. "They enjoy a challenge and always play with great spirit and determination."

  20. Sandhurst Sloths aim for fast track to finals

    A sense of humour is a handy tool in football and the coach of the Sandhurst Sloths, Steve Skinner, reckons that the team name of his U-16 girls shows that they have it in spades.

    "The 'Sloths' was the captain's idea and a good illustration as to the witty character of the girls in the squad. As 15-year-old girls, they do love to chill out and relax when not playing - ask their mums about the state of their bedrooms and the carnage they leave about the house, it's like a hurricane swept through!" says Steve.

    "On a more serious note, girls and ladies football has moved forward. Experiences like this will only benefit their development and hopefully ensure that they stay with the game for life." They compete at Goals in Reading today for the chance to make the final.

  28. Caroline inspires Kidlington kids

    Caroline Whitfield is something of an inspiration: she runs Kidlington Youth, whom her daughter plays for, having previously had almost zero experience of football.

    "I became manager because they wouldn't have been able to get started otherwise," she says. "I didn't really know anything much about football but have since taken my FA level 2 coaching badge (not many women have done that, especially at my time of life!) and know tons more now. The girls are lovely, their parents are brilliant and supportive and we all have a great time."

    They're playing in the U16 girls semis in Reading today, and will be tough to beat. "We've been league champions in Oxfordshire for the last two seasons and unbeaten in that time too," adds Caroline.

  32. Living long and prosper

    Ever heard of the Cheshire Champions League?!!! 'Vulcan Galaxy' have qualified for it, by virtue of finishing runners up in the Wigan/Bolton League. But that competition is for next season - today they're battling it out in the girls U16 semis at Powerleague Manchester South.

    The club are based in Vulcan Village in Newton Le Willows, originally built as a model village to house the railway workers at the nearby Vulcan Works, which closed some years ago. The site of the works is now a housing development and the club lost the majority of its playing facilities 12 years ago, although - after concerted campaigning - three new pitches and a club house will open for the start of the 2015/16 season. Great news.

    Coach Andy Boyack says: "We're a community-based club and we welcome everyone who wants to play - and guarantee at least 50% playing time in matches to all girls."

    Fingers crossed for the finals ladies...looks like you have some fierce competition judging from the Manchester South fixtures list.

  37. Recap: What is the FA People's Cup?

    Get Inspired

    BBC Get Inspired teamed up with the Football Association and the country's leading small-sided football providers to launch the FA People's Cup, a free five-a-side knockout competition which gives players the chance to play in their version of the FA Cup.

    From Sunday League regulars to folk who have only kicked a ball in their back yard, the tournament offers everyone the opportunity to follow in the path of legends on the road to Cup glory.

    A total of 4306 teams signed up, making it a massive 30,000+ players.

    We are now down to 255 teams and 1785 players as we get closer and closer to the final. It's getting intense.

  38. Hope and glory
