The final whistle has blown on this season’s SSP Year 5-6 Football Development Leagues and positions were up for grabs until the final matches. the aim of the league was to give more boys and girls the chance to represent their school in competitive football matches against teams from other local schools.
The Football Development League was played over four days of fixtures this year due to the amount of schools entering teams. The league was split into two divisions to allow and encourage matches between teams of a similar ability.
The referees were volunteers from City Academy Norwich and they volunteered for all the four fixtures, refereeing matches lasting 12 minutes split in to two halves. The league was hosted on all weather floodlit pitches at the UEA Sportspark.
George Harmer, Project Officer commented:
“It was great to see the players improve over the four days of fixtures and see how excited they were to play. There was some really talented players and hope to see them playing in local teams outside of school if they’re not already!”

1st – Mulbarton Primary School
