Your Game enjoys thrilling finale
Hallam Girls celebrate winning the women's competition
Rice Lane of Liverpool and Sheffield's Hallam Girls are the 2006 BBC Your Game champions.

They won the men's and women's tournaments at the national final at Newcastle United's St James' Park.

Your Game is a partnership between the BBC, the Premier League, the Football Foundation, the FA, the PFA, Kick It Out and Streetleague.

It aims to provide opportunities through football to young men and women from inner-city communities.

Over the last three months, teams have been competing for a place at the final in regional heats in Newcastle, Liverpool, Manchester, London, Solent, Birmingham and Sheffield.

Sixteen male and 12 female teams made the journey to the North East to compete in the national final, under the watchful eye of Newcastle United manager Glenn Roeder.

Sheffield's Hallam Girls were the dominant force throughout the women's competition, and overcame a gallant Brent Ladies in the final.

And there was more good news for Hallam's Anna Perks when she recieved the women's Best Individual Player award.

Tottenham Ladies received the Fair Play award from Newcastle United academy director Jimmy Nelson, and they will enjoy VIP hospitality at a Premiership game next season thanks to the Premier League.

The men's tournament threw up more surprises, and the final was an all-Liverpool affair as Rice Lane took on Dream Team.

Rice Lane took the honours in a close-fought match to ensure that the FA Cup was not the only silverware on its way to Merseyside.

Yafiet Maheri of International All-Stars took the award for Best Individual Player in the mens tournament, while PPG were awarded the men's Fair Play award.
