On Saturday 13th April, Bootham Futsal Club U14s and U16s make the long trip south to Birmingham to play in the FA Futsal Youth Cup Semi-Finals.
This will be Coach Chris’s third time taking teams down to Birmingham. In conversation he said, ‘We are really excited as this year we have nearly full strength sides in both age groups. The only player missing is Eleanor from the U14s group, who suffered an unfortunate ankle injury this week during her football training. She will definitely be missed!’
He continued with,‘ Last year was disappointing due to the dates conflicting with the RTC trials in York. Training has gone very well and we feel we are perfectly prepared. As it is a national competition, you have no idea what your opposition we be like but we know it will be very hard. Win, lose or draw, the girls will give it everything, and that is the most important part for me.‘
The format of the semi-finals is 2 leagues of 4 teams, with the winners of each league playing in the National Finals at St George’s Park in May!
Everyone at Pro Coaching Academy wish the girls the very best of luck! Come on, Bootham!
