Big children's football tournaments have made a welcome return to Dereham, with around 800 youngsters taking part in the Aldiss Park Cup over the weekend.
The event saw around 300 10-minute games played for youngsters in teams from under seven to under 14.
Dereham Town Youth Football Club used to hold such events annually, but this was the first tournament since 2011.
Marco Zasiura, committee member, said he was thrilled with the response to the Central Garage-sponsored tournament.
Mr Zasiura said: 'What this is all about is letting the kids have fun.
