The girls secured their place in the next tier following a penalty flick shoot-out against Harleston Magpies.

They drew their opening games against Magpies and Norwich Dragons 1-1, with Lottie Hood scoring both goals, before seeing off hosts Pelicans 4-0 with goals from Hollie Blackham, Millie Power, India Fox and Chloe Holmes.

The competition came down to a best-of-three penalty shoot-out with Magpies and City keeper Jessica Westbury saved all three flicks. Chloe found the net with her second penalty flick to decide the issue.

Meanwhile City’s boys also won their Norfolk tournament. They won games against Harleston Magpies (2-0), Pelicans (7-0) and Dragons II (1-0) and lost 1-0 to Dragons first team. Harry Ford, Corey Rushton and Josie Miller all won player-of-the-match titles.

All Saturday’s scheduled league fixtures were postponed.
