Sheffield City Football Alliance came together to celebrate the European Football Championships by hosting a tournament for football-mad youngsters from across the city.
Sheffield & Hallamshire FA organised the tournament, which was held on Friday 22 June at Sheffield International Venue's Concord Sports Centre, with teams being provided by Activity <<Euro 17.BMP>> Sheffield, and the Blades and Owls community programmes.
The 16 teams were divided into under 13 and under 16 age groups, with all matches being played using the familiar 5-a-side format.
Sheffield & Hallamshire FA's Chris Bly, who helped organise the tournament, said: "It's been great to share some of the fun of the European Championships with children from throughout the city of Sheffield.
"The amount of young people who were eager to get involved and play the game in a fantastic spirit was brilliant to see, even though it meant missing Germany's quarter final win over Greece.
"We were worried about the rain affecting the competition, as it did with the France v Ukraine game in Donetsk, but luckily the lightning storms held off!"
Over 100 eager children attended the competition, spurred on by England's progress to the quarter finals of the European Championships.
AFC Charlie in the U13 tournament and Fudge Nudgers in the U16 quarter finals were to suffer the same fate as the national side as they both crashed out of the tournament on penalties, losing in sudden death 1-0 to Aston Vanilla and 7-6 to Winn Gardens respectively.
Wednesday's Steel City pipped Sheffield United's Kickz A to lift the U16 cup, beating them 1-0 in a game reminiscent of last season's derby game at Hillsborough.
In the U13 competition, the Blades' Kickz A beat Activity Sheffield's Aston Vanilla by the same scoreline.
Cllr Isobel Bowler, the city council's cabinet member for culture, sport and leisure, said: "It was great that there was a young people's tournament to capitalise on the additional interest generated by the European Championships.
"The Sheffield Football Alliance is to be congratulated for making this happen - and well done to all the young people who took part.
"Sheffield is a city of sport and we welcome every opportunity to get more people, more active, more often."
Sue Beeley, United's head of community, said: "This was a great opportunity for the City Alliance to do something together and participants from our projects were keen to be involved.
"Once again the young people showed a really positive attitude and a high standard of behaviour."
The City Football Alliance was formed last year as a lasting legacy to the city's 2018 World Cup bid.
It comprises of four organisations, the County FA, the City Council, United and Wednesday, who have pledged to work together to increase the popularity of the sport, whilst using it to address key issues, such as education, health and social cohesion.
