The inaugural King's Lynn and District Sunday League six-a-side tournament was a roaring success at Lynnsport on Sunday.
Fourteen teams competed in the event, set to be an annual fixture, on the popular King's Lynn 3G surface in the hope of claiming pre-season bragging rights.
Fourteen teams competed in three groups to qualify for the knock-out stages with one having a three-way tie. FANG, Terrington, William Burt A and Lynn Napier all went out in the quarter finals, Burt on sudden-death penalties.
Wisbech CP8 saw off Chilvers 1-0 to book their place in the final while West Norfolk Scaffolding beat William Burt B on penalties to edge their way into the day's last match.
In a surprisingly one-sided final, Scaffolding beat a leggy CP8 3-0 to emerge unlikely victors, having only won three of their seven games in normal time.
The Wisbech side's Aaron Wright did go home with a winning prize after being voted player of the tournament by competition sponsor Kitman UK. Louis Gaughran, thanks to his two goals in the final, was joint top goalscorer with CP8's Shaun Simpson.
Most of the players who competed on the day are back in action at the weekend as clubs in both of the league's two divisions kick-off their seasons.
