Immingham Pilgrims’s u10s; Healing Hotspurs u12s & u14s plus Grimsby Town u15s all heading to Hull University – Sunday 24th for Regional Qualifying Round of the FA Youth Futsal Cup.

Winners from Hull will progress to FA National Final.

To date we have had a girls team be National Champion and one boys’ u15 team semi finalists.

Having seen quality of local teams I’m confident they can deliver at Hull; all they have to do is replicate local play off form.

No team had a walk over to next stage at Hull; they all progressed against challenging opposition who pushed them all the way.

The futsal played by all teams, winners and those missing out, was brilliant, match after match I got to watch build up play that belonged to teams years older, any player lost the ball the ball, they was like a tiger to retrieve it back. Keepers made stunning saves but always had the talent to pass the ball into play as if I was watching UEFA League football.

10/10 to managers and teams who made competition such a compelling watch.

Is Eric Cantona writing Under 17s Match Reports?

Grimsby Diamonds 8 Toto FC 6

Tonight Toto clearly came for a definite ‘turkey shoot’, Without their talisman leader Adam, who defected tonight to the opposition, they set about hunting down Diamonds from the first whistle and completely outplayed them taking a well deserved 5 – 1 lead in the first before a lacklustre Diamonds started to ruffle some feathers of their own scoring two before the break for a 5 – 3 half time scoreline. But in the second, as Diamonds started to rally by doing what they do best, Toto fell apart turning the gun on themselves by trying to defend a lead, rather than continue to play as they had, intimidate and worst of all turned on the gamekeeper. Whereas, Diamonds didn’t flap, kept their heads, steadily pecked away as the minutes were gobbled up, scored five goals and in so doing handed out a valuable lesson in Futsal technique. So tonight the turkey won 8 – 6!
