The final playoff games are scheduled for next Saturday, 4 May.

All were watched by volunteer coaches like track and field star Carl Morgan and flag football veterans David Taylor and Josh Merren.
Organised by the flag football association, the league is in its fifth year and caters to boys and girls age 7 to 17. The competition has consistently showcased top youth talent like Christopher Collins, David Lee and Dylan Bostock. Many companies have served as sponsors over multiple seasons like Popeyes, Strategic Risk Solutions and Walkers.
