The girls organised the festival of football fun for 30 youngsters from two cluster schools, Robert Kett Junior and Wicklewood Primary, following the completion of their initial JFO course.
They drew up a timetable of activities to deliver, which included fun warm-ups, small-sided matches and skill work.
Representatives from FA Charter Standard Club Wymondham Town United were on hand to encourage and support both the players and the young leaders, with a link between the schools and the club set to follow.

Meanwhile Darren Moss, Norfolk County FA's Girls and Women's Development Officer, was thrilled to see the girls who he tutored through the JFO course perform so efficiently on their big day. “It has been a great success. Both the players and leaders have excelled themselves and the real winner today has been girls' football in the area.”
