Nicol Magpies Qualify for 3rd FA National Futsal Finals

Second Avenue
Monday Premier League
Magpies qualified for a third FA Futsal Cup Finals at Sheffield.  16 teams qualify nationally, the teams play a ‘world cup’ format over 3 days.  Their 6-2 win over Young’s Seafood’s was capped by a Denial Hornigold stunner.

Fulstow Rovers lifted recent indifferent form to see off the resurgent Grimsby Catalonia 6-3.

Second Avenue
Tuesday Division II
Thorpe Park 4 Rose & Crown 2 was a lower half of the table 6 pointer that lifted Thorpe into the top half of the table.

Harvest FC kept up their impressive played 9 won 9 record with a comprehensive 9-2 stroll against StreetSoccer.

Grimsby Auditorium scored 2 in the first 5 minutes and were then pegged bag for 35!  Magpies II pulled a goal back fought to equalise and then lost out to a late 3rd goal.

Centaur found themselves 6-4 in front against leaders ACD.  At which point, as good teams do, ACD pulled up their socks and ran away with the game 16-6.  The Achilles heel of every Robbo/Lill team (Centaur) – attention to defense.

In an end game that could have gone either way, two experienced teams Piemonte and Grimsby Babtist Church, battled end to end with Pie’ eventually falling over the finishing line 7-5.

Second Avenue
Wednesday Division III
With minutes to go Second Ave 5 Young’s Seafood’s 5; Kirk Russell .returns to the pitch and snatches 2 goals and the game for Second Ave.

Lindsey Old Boys score some great goals to beat PB Kent 6-2.

ACD de Saloa too much futsal knowledge for HETA. 14-3.

Game of the night Daz Clark 10 Expressions 6.

Kent Street League

Eagles 7-4 win over Nelson FC means a 3rd place finish for Eagles.

At mid day Sid (Humbertherm) had let be known he had his strongest team to date to play Kent St. that evening.  At the same time Kent St had a team falling apart with injuries.  Lose and Kent St would hand the title to Football Wizards.  Kent St got the walking wounded out and scraped for an 11-6 win.  A Football Wizards show down will decide title with the leagues final game.

A tight 4-1 StreetSoccer Milan win takes them to 4th from bottom, not bad for a team cemented at the bottom for half the season.  

Bottom placed Everglaze have a grievance as second bottom Futsal Warriors have benefited from 6 awarded points when opponents have cancelled at late notice.  Thankfully a practice that rarely occurs, attendances throughout the league have been brilliant.  Bad weather, televised football, ‘town’ matches; teams have got out there and challenged themselves.

Friendly Matches
Grimsby All Blacks continued their impressive run of friendly games.  Their biggest test to date saw them beat College 2001 7-5.  Star player every time, Wisam Tafari.

Futsal is a very fast, highly competitive game of five aside.  Futsal is the only game of five aside recognized by FIFA.  (fifa.com search futsal for rules).  A visit to the UEFA.com web site will illustrate the vastness of the game in Europe.  For UK news visit futsal.org.uk.  To play locally at any level contact Kevin Bryant 07980 286663 or visit grimsbyfootball.co.uk

Thankyou very much

Harvest keeper, Matt Bryant keeps yet another clea

Second Avenue
Monday Premier League
Young’s vs. Gunners Watch started off the evenings Futsal résumé. Young’s weren’t at their best with Gunners dominating most of the game with Danny Powers being influential from the back. Gunners pulled off an 8-3 victory which was thoroughly deserved.

Grimsby Catalonians’ matched College 2001 with determination and resilience to earn a 2-2 draw.  College needed a win to stand any chance of clawing back top team Magpies.

Magpies didn’t get out of second gear against a Caistor side which was lacking match practice.  An 8-0 victory for Magpies saw a struggling Caistor off with ease.  Magpies 100% record unassailable?  Almost 30 league games since last defeat.

Second Avenue
Tuesday Division II
Matt Bryant keeps another Harvest FC clean sheet.  Only 9 goals conceded in 8 matches is credible in eleven aside, more so in five aside when scoring opportunities are multiplied tenfold.  Grimsby Auditorium struggled to get into the game; Harvest scored 6.

Thorpe Park 2 Magpies II 3. The game would have been 2-2 had the referee blown his whistle seconds earlier, it was that close. The game was a credit to booth teams.

ACD 6 Piemonte 4 flatters Piemonte.  That said they should be given credit for clawing themselves back into a game that at one stage was running away from them.

Rose & Crown 7 Centaur 1.  An important win for R&C as it lifted them a place up the league whilst cementing Centaur to the bottom.  Centaur needs a couple of younger players to add to their undoubted experience.  ‘Robbo’ 07877534290 if you want a game?

Wednesday Division III
With minutes to go Second Ave 5 Young’s Seafood’s 5; Kirk Russell .returns to the pitch and snatches 2 goals and the game for Second Ave.

Lindsey Old Boys score some great goals to beat PB Kent 6-2.

ACD de Saloa too much futsal knowledge for HETA. 14-3.

Kent Street League

Kent St 12 Everglaze 3.  Brings title race down to a Kent St V Warriors shoot out!

Humbertherm back on track with back to back wins.  Nelson FC being the fall guys 9-5.  Bad result for Nelson who was just putting a run together.

Friendly Matches
Newly formed Grimsby All Blacks was very impressive in their meeting against Fulstow. This game was the best of the evening with a proficient and capable display from both teams. The second half held the best spell for the All Blacks with them beating Fulstow 7-3.

Kent St and Wizards tested each other out with a strong work out. 9-5 Kent St.

Eagles stepped in to play Futsal warriors and had just too much futsal class and experience.  18-4.

Kent Street FC send out a futsal warning……….

Futsal League Reports Monday 27th November.

Second Avenue
Monday Premier League
A restricted two game programme.  Due to a catalogue of injuries Caistor have fielded a completely new team for the last 3 games.  That they managed to hold Fulstow Rovers to 4-4 was a major surprise.

Grimsby Catalonia may have lost 6-3 to Nicol Magpies, but they are getting closer.  They were in the game up to half time (0-1) but conceded as they tried to push Magpies back.  The fact the Magpies did not play well was due to Catalonia’s growing resilience.  
Second Avenue
Tuesday Division II
CFKA have found a new gear after assisting Caistor in a division higher.  Rose & Crown looked to have turned a corner but CFKA have set them back a step. 9-2

Harvest FC is ‘reaping’ the goals. To date no one in the division has got close to them.  StreetSoccer would be first to admit 9-1 could have been worse.

Centaur and Grimsby Auditorium are inconsistent; what would happen when the two met. Slightly against form Centaur ran out 8-5 winners.

Grimsby Babtist Church v Thorpe Park looked on paper a tough game for booth teams; and so it proved.  2-2 after 40 minutes of keenly fought five aside is testimony to the battle.

Second Avenue
Wednesday Division III
Games being played as reports went to press.

Kent Street League
Kent St FC by all reports put in the performance of the week, beating the highly rated Grimsby Bears 11-2.  Every goal being like goal dust to them as they chase Football Wizards for the title; which looks like going down to the last game.

Humbertherm beat Everglaze by the odd goal in 13.  The league is falling into halves.  The top 5 being competitive against each other and the bottom 5 similar.

Eagles and StreetSoccer played a game that the result will count for League II.  The score 17-7 to Eagles.

Friendly Matches
Grimsby All Blacks v Nelson FC
All Blacks continue to record impressive results.  12-5 may have flattered them as the goal was close until the late stages.

Re StreetSoccer report

The hardest article I have ever had to write.

On Monday I received a call that FC Coventry could not play this week.  One of their players had died.  His name was Phil Allen. My mind played tricks with me, not ‘Dilch’ he was too young to leave us.  The reality hit home when the Telegraph dropped through the door with his face on the front page.  It was ‘Dilch.’

For those of you who may have seen his picture in the Telegraph ‘Dilch’ played with us from day one of the futsal league; first as Pizza Paradise, and then the same group of friends changed their name to FC Coventry.

We met by accident when I was asked to organise some football by the Grange & Crowland Community Centre.  ‘Dilch’ organised some of his friends to play some older ex GTFC YT’s at Western School.  For my part I brought along a ball that didn’t bounce and a strange set of rules sent to me by a Brazilian coach.  Four weeks later we were still playing, the group had doubled in size,  but we had lost our booking space.

We went to play at the Second Avenue Resource Centre, challenged by friendly locals, we were on their patch,  and the Grimsby Futsal League was created.  Thanks to ‘Dilch’ and his freinds accepting the challenge of a new game, even the FA  followed; they have had four National Futsal Championships whilst Grimsby has grown to 40 teams in 4 leagues.  

Thanks Phil
