After 6 months away, the girls of Bootham Girls’ Futsal Club – York finally got to train together. We had a fantastic turn out and huge thank you to all the parents for their amazing support throughout this enforced break.
Best of all we had 6 new girls trying futsal for the very first time! Welcome to Ava C, Ava W, Florence, Heather, Helana and Irma – we hope you all had a fab time and hope to see you again very soon.
With the news that the country is about to enter another lockdown, we decided to just let the girls play, with games galore on the menu. The first group had smiles all round and it was brilliant to see some of the passing and movement from such a young age. We were tempted to say they had been practising whilst away…
The older group were a bit more serious with some fast, attacking futsal. Again, the standard on show was amazing and the new girls added a new dimension with their pace and direct play. Lots to work on going forward and we really can’t wait.
As we write this, we are awaiting any news from the government, the FA and NRCFA as to wether we can continue training. After such a long break, and such a fantastic first session back, we would all be devastated if we have to stop again so soon. Fingers crossed for a very, very quick return this time!
We still have a few places left in all our age groups, but they are filling up fast. If you fancy having a go at futsal for the very first time, please contact Head Coach Chris on 07720 441953 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
