Great to get such posative feedback. Well done Thursday u13 teams.

Hi Kevin.
Noticed we don’t have a game this week. If you have a spare slot anywhere we’d love a friendly.

I’ve really been impressed with the new ref over the last few weeks (don’t agree with every decision but I think he has been fair and completely controls the game).

The level of play has also been improving rapidly. One of the goals we conceded to Dragons was fantastic futsal and the second one we conceded to Sydney was the best individual goal I’ve seen all season.

Also watched the Wybers game and thought it was fantastic to see some youngsters stepping up a level, playing the bigger lads, using their speed and agility to the max and most of all smiling when they did it.

Just a little feedback from a dad who loves the chance to see kids express themselves.

Regards

Diamonds continue to glitter as they retain under 17s league title & £75 Football Stuff voucher

Gy Diamonds

Grimsby Diamonds scored 82 goals and conceded just 37, recording the best offence and best defence in league.

Having watched team develop past seasons I can confirm they are a formidable unit.

Cleethorpes Town teams took next three places with just six points separating the teams.

Futsal is noted for higher scoring matches than grass football, Healing played fourteen games and managed to record a zero goal difference. Some achievement in itself.

Standard of league has improved every week; which is a testament to all teams playing.

A new league starts immediately, league has spaces for a couple new teams. If you have a group of friends or play for a club team that is up for the challenge make that contact call.

Me2
2016

Winning the Premier is a minute by minute task, such is the competitiveness of every team.

Me2 have played futsal for ten years to get to pinnacle of league. Me2 are masters of the defence art, if team concedes a goal it is taken personally. That said the defence is the teams springboard to attack. Me2 counter attack with devilish speed and accuracy.

Can they retain title, the competition will be tough, Franklin College and Payzone will be snapping at their heels from day one.

Word about bottom placed Lions. Lions gave everyone a close game, only in last couple matches did they concede heavily. The youngest team in league looked future champions in making. Only in last couple games did they concede heavily. The fact that the bottom team could include players that have played National League level tells you how competitive league is.

Want to join the other 60 million people playing futsal? Make that call 07980 286663 or email kevin@futsal.org.uk  If you love football you will love futsal even more.

Hull 7 London Warriors 9 – Matty Payne & Liam Highton star for Hull – But what a venue!

New Hull University Sports Hall

Great that two Grimsby players assisted Hull in their FA Futsal Cup venture 2019.

Oddest of games, Warriors opened up a 2-0 lead only for Hull to go in 3-2 a head at break. Warriors was poor first half and Hull maybe went in complacent and resting on the laurels of their comeback.

Second half Warriors dominated, went five goals ahead and then went off boil and was struggling to see game out. With one minute forty left on clock Hull was within a goal of levelling. Cool heads was needed and a game plan; not to be Warriors scored two late goals to deny Hull what would have been a remarkable comeback.

New Hull University sports hall has it all; three courts; goals that can be elevated high onto walls at a touch of a button. Grimsby has nothing to compare.

Report from Meglio on their venture to play teams from around world in Barcelona

We suffered 2 defeats in our first two games to FC Barcelona (Spain) and São Paulo (Brazil). We didn’t play well in either of these games and we were disappointed with our levels.
In the third game we recovered from 5-2 down to beat a combined USA/Argentina team 8-7 in a thrilling game. We scored the winner with less than 20 seconds left to play.

This gave us a place in the playoffs against Melbourne (Australia). We successfully won this game 12-7 with a strong performance to book our place in the playoff final against Pescolda Machida (Japan). It was a wonderful game against the Japanese which swung back and forth – ultimately we just missed out 7-9 on the scoreboard despite creating more opportunities to score.

We finished in 6th place overall and 2nd place in terms of European teams – we are very proud of what we have achieved competing against some of the very best in the World.

Rio Futsal Academy (Brazil) beat FC Barcelona in the final to become World Champions – congratulations to them.

Meglio player Harvey Tomlinson finished tournament as top goal scorer and returned home with the ‘Golden Boot’.
