Agricultural purchasing group Anglia Farmers is celebrating after their football team won the hallowed Boswell Cup in the final of a seven-a-side tournament.

The Colton-based group took the title after a competitive match against the organisers, Alan Boswell Group, at Norwich City's home ground, Carrow Road.

And a team made up of Archant staff members came out on top in a plate final match against Hingham-based AC Bacon Engineering.

Other teams competing in the business tournament were Clapham and Collinge, Lovewell Blake, Mills and Reeve and Spartek.

Alan Boswell Group has organised the charity tournament annually since 2015, this year raising £1,887.40 for Norfolk and Waveney cancer charity, Big C, through ticket sales, a silent auction and post-game raffle at Yellows Bar and Grill.
