The Van Shop Cup was held at Fakenham's Clipbush Park, from Saturday, June 22 to Sunday, June 23, and saw more than 950 children compete in mixed teams.

Tournament committee chairman James Page said: "It's been the best one we've ever done. I think the team of organisers make it.

"They're great, and all the families get involved.

"You can't speak highly enough of them. They never let you down."
