Blenheim Park Primary School hosted the Fakenham and Wells cluster football festival.

In the biggest-ever turnout in a competition of it’s kind, 12 teams were keen to win the World Cup-style trophy.

Fakenham B and Wells A both won their groups. In one of the quarter-finals Fakenham A knocked out pre-tournament favourites Langham with an extra-time golden goal to set up a semi-final with Fakenham B.

Astley took on Wells in the other semi-final. This was a close game with Wells winning
1-0. Fakenham A beat Fakenham B to set up a Wells A v Fakenham A final.

Wells A had beaten their opponents earlier in the day 1-0, but this time the score line was reversed and Fakenham A were champions.

Four students from Fakenham High School earned thanks as they refereed all the matches.

Little Snoring, Colkirk, Blenheim Park, All Saints and West Raynham were also in attendance.

Thanks went to all schools that sent a team.
