Enfield have won the UK six-a-side Championships with a 1-0 victory over Oxford.

Held in the shadow of Aston Villa's Villa Park ground, the tournament saw more than 3,000 of the UK's finest six-a-side players go head-to-head.

A goal midway through the first half from Craige Tomkins was enough to settle the final tie between Enfield and Oxford.

Speaking afterwards, Enfield and Wales' Daniel Beszant said: "It took guts and hard work to get this trophy, before adding: "We are all shattered, we are going home to sleep."

The teams competed in 64 groups of four, with the top two in each group progressing to the first knockout rounds.

Enfield shone in the knockout rounds, beating pre-tournament favourites Northwood, who boast England skipper, Ben Long, amongst their ranks.

Now in its seventh year, the tournament has become one of the most prestigious of its kind, attracting teams from up and down the country.
