THE Wis­bech St Mary five and six-a-side tour­na­ment re­mains one of the biggest dates in the sum­mer cal­en­dar af­ter an­other bumper turnout.

More than 200 girls and boys teams and over 1,500 play­ers made the trip out to the deep­est, dark­est fens for the tour­na­ment which once again de­liv­ered two days of fan­tas­tic foot­ball.

And there was good news for city teams with Nether­ton tak­ing the boys Un­der 9 crown af­ter a 2-0 win against Crow­land in the fi­nal while Peter­bor­ough Azure claimed their fourth con­sec­u­tive ti­tle at the event af­ter beat­ing Outwell Swifts 4-2 on penal­ties in the ladies fi­nal.

Goal­keeper Nikki Kuch was the hero­ine in the penalty shoot-out mak­ing two saves while Azure scored a per­fect four penal­ties.

The Peter­bor­ough Di­a­monds Un­der 13 girls team beat Deep­ing Di­a­monds in the fi­nal on penal­ties while Yax­ley also did well, pick­ing up both the boys Un­der 12 and Un­der 13 crowns.

They beat Ely Cru­saders 4-1 in the Un­der 12 de­cider and Gun­thorpe Har­ri­ers 3-0 in the Un­der 13 fi­nal.

There was also plenty to cel­e­brate for the host club with wins in the Un- der 14 and 15 boys cat­e­gories.

Tour­na­ment or­gan­iser Sue Dighton said: “It was a won­der­ful two days of foot­ball and I would like to thank all the teams who took part, the club’s com­mit­tee, our spon­sors J.S Holmes, and of course the lo­cal com­mu­nity for their sup­port. This is our only fundrais­ing event for the whole sea­son so it was won­der­ful to get such a good turnout again.”
