The teams for the first ever Manor Futsal Cup have been announced:
‘A Team’ – captained by Phoebe Atkinson
A team of seasoned futsal and football players from various years. They have plenty of futsal experience, with some strong individual players. Could be one of the outsiders if they perform to their true potential, but can captain Phoebe manage the personnel to get a winning formula?
‘BFC Best Futsal Club’ – captained by Matilde Henriques
This team must start the tournament as favourites, the squad is packed with lots of futsal experience, with arguably the best goalkeeper of all the squads. But can they stand the pressure of being the tournament favourites and play the type of futsal they are capable of?
‘Class On Grass’ – captained by Reece Willoughby
The team is mainly year 7 boys with a couple of unknown year 8 girls. Some very good footballers in their squad, but can they adapt their game to futsal? On paper one of the strongest teams in the competition, but can they live up to their pre-tournament hype and go on and win the cup?
‘The Lions’ – captained by Summer Holmes
They are mainly a year 7 girls team with one year 9 boy, and the complete unknowns in the tournament. A team of good footballers, can they surprise the other teams, will their lack of knowledge of futsal go against them or can they be the surprise package of the tournament?
The first fixtures will be played on Wednesday 25 October 2017, kick off at 3.45pm, and will be between:
Game 1 – The Lions Vs BFC Best Futsal Club
Game 2 – Class On Grass Vs A Team
