Futsal launched festivals throughout England recently with the northern regional Clubs taking part at the Leeds Futsal Arena last Wednesday.
Dale competed admirably beating Leeds United 2-1, Carlisle United 5-3, Blackburn Rovers 2-1 but losing against Sheffield United 4-5 with a goal conceded in the last minute.
The standard more than impressed Community Trust Manager, Keith Hicks who commented
“The boys were brilliant, competing against more experienced and physically stronger opponents especially Leeds who apparently triumphed in last season’s national tournament. I’m hoping that this will spur them on to greater things and who knows we may be off to Barcelona as this season’s winners”
v Leeds United-Dominic Toft, Lewis Stagg
v Carlisle United-Sam Gregori 2, Michael Lawless 2, Ryan Lockett
v Blackburn Rovers-Jack Warner, Lewis Stagg
v Sheffield United-Louis Robinson 2, Dominic Toft 2
Futsal leagues will be officially launched on Wednesday 25th September with updated information posted on the Club’s website.
