Juniors players take futsal control; most of the age 15+ teams organise and manage themselves, the fashion has now moved into the under 14’s league. Will it work? Early signs are positive Dynamite results defiantly show an upward trend under player control, Keelby the jury is out, reason being that they have played so few games compared to their opposition. For those in the 14+ junior age group click here to read an excellent document detailing the aspirations of that age group.

FA schools tournament; the LFA have verbally told me that junior ‘teams’ will not be able to compete in the 2014 FA Junior Futsal Cup – age groups u12 and u14. The tournament is to be aimed at schools with each County FA organising their own qualifying tournaments. Under 16’s will include club teams, which I am able to nominate based on performances in our local league. All categories will have male/female competitions. Watch this space.

YMCA 3 out of three; nice to see all three teams that train futsal with me at YMCA win all their matches, not going to happen every week I know, but pleasing when it does.

Girls can play futsal ‘til 16; same age banding as other junior football. Had an inquiry for a mixed team to play in school year 9/10 league; good to confirm they can play.

Franklin;Scartholonia and Me2 all rack up big Tuesday League wins. Usually the tightest of leagues suddenly throws up three one sided results; very out of character although Franklin, Scartholonia and Me2 All Stars will not be complaining.

New year 4/5 league throws up another great night of futsal. Put individual teams in different kit and they are unrecognizable from week one. Now up to 8 teams but can accommodate more.

Year 11/12 League is a sprint to the line, teams play fourteen matches:











Titans 11 9 2 0 105 21 84 29 WWDWWW
