Today was the fifth and final day of the 2016 Norfolk Summer School Games Finals and was blessed with beautiful weather. The event was delivered in partnership with Norfolk County FA.
Day five of the Games was based at the Football Development Centre (FDC) in Norwich and included the Yr 3-4 Girls Football Finals and the Yr 4-6 Mixed Football Finals.
Yr 3-4 Girls Football Finals
Sixteen teams of girls from across the County came together to take part in the Yr 3-4 Girls Football Finals.
Teams were split into four groups with teams competing in a round robin format. Once all of teh fixtures had been completed the top two teams from each group progressed into the Cup Competition with the bottom two teams in each group going in to the Plate Competition.
The Cup/Plate competitions were both split into two groups with teams again competing against each other in a round robin format.
At the culmination of those groups the teams that finished in the same position in each of the Cup groups played off for overall positions (1st to 8th). The same happened for the teams in the Plate competition who played off for 9th-16th position. The headline results were;
1st – Costessey Junior School (West Norwich & Dereham SSP)
2nd – Woodlands Primary Academy (East Norfolk SSP)
3rd – Dussindale Primary School (Norwich East SSP)
1st – Docking Primary School (West Norfolk SSP)
