The young players were split into two leagues to battle it out in the knockout stages of the competition.
Teams from the 1st Oulton Broad and 4th Lowestoft packs reached the semi finals, but were then defeated in their matches.
Then in an exciting final and cheered on by noisy spectators, 1st Carlton Colville ran out the eventual winners in a closely fought match – beating 1st Blundeston by a 2 – 1 score-line.
Presenting the awards, Maurice Garrod thanked all the referees, leaders and families for supporting the competition.
He also thanked the players for all their efforts and for making the event such a success.
Paul Cator, assistant district commissioner for Cubs, said: “2016 is the centenary of cub scouts in the Lowestoft district and as well as the usual variety of competitions, of which the 5-a-side indoor football contest was the first, there would be a number of special activities to look forward to during the year - to celebrate the milestone.”
