  1. That's all folks

    We've come to the end of the road.

    Just for tonight that is! We're ending our coverage of day two of the FA People's Cup round one but don't worry we'll be back again at 10:00 GMT on Sunday.

    In the morning it will be the turn of the Under-14 and Under-16 girls before the Adult Male category in the afternoon.

    Thanks to everyone for getting involved today. It has been a blast! 

    See you tomorrow.

  2. 'It's something we have dreamt of'

    Right at the end of today's action, we've just got time to congratulate Retro Rovers A on their victory in their Walking Football category.

    We'll see you in the semi-finals!

    Keep watching this video until the end. There's a great interview with Jan, who runs Retro Rovers and we have mentioned a few times today.

    It brings a tear to my eye.

  7. 'Champions' Boys from Nancy sack manager

    Win the title last year? Check.

    Vote of no confidence this year? Check.

    Coach sacked? Check. 

    Team-mates jumping ship? Check.

    No we're not talking about Claudio Ranieri...

    Following 6-0, 6-0, 7-0, 8-0 defeats  Boys from Nancy  have sacked their manager.

    You might recognise David, the club's captain. He's a star of TV and stage . Think Doctor Who, Silent Witness, W1A.
