Bill Taylor futsal dissertation ‘Futsal the Lost Game’

Futsal Focus congratulates journalist Billy Taylor on this short documentary he did as his University degree dissertation to show the frustration felt by clubs working hard to develop Futsal in England and the struggles they face. Billy traveled as far as Carlisle, a 9 hour drive from his home to interview the club, the documentary took quite a while to do and we recommend all of you to watch it. Futsal Focus loves to see this kind of passion from young people involved in the sport.

Featured in the documentary are F.S Derby Futsal Club, Carlisle Futsal Club, Seth Burkett (Who wrote the successful book – Boy in Brazil), Simon Wright Chairman of Manchester Futsal Club (who celebrated their 10 year anniversary this year), Robert Brassett (If you know English Futsal you know Robert, the hours he has put into to developing the sport in his community and to bring awareness to English Futsal deserves only respect), Daniel Slater from the University of Nottingham, the club has done a wonderful job developing Futsal in Nottingham and attracted former SL. Benfica Head Coach Roger Augusto due to their efforts) and many others who took time to get involved.

We ask everyone to share this video and help to increase awareness of Futsal in England, across the UK/Ireland and to increase awareness abroad of the hardships that English Futsal faces.
