U10 Yellows through to county futsal final!
Essex County FA Futsal tournament
Our GFA U10’s Yellows recently added Futsal to their regular training regime with great results in the kids development.
Always up for a challenge they entered the Essex County FA Futsal tournament involving a number of team across the County.
The qualifier took place on Saturday in Chelmsford with GFA up against another 6 teams in a round robin style, with the winner going through to the County finals.
As we had never played Futsal competitively we were heading into the unknown, but the first game dispelled all nerves with a convincing win. We then went on to win the next 3 games to face the 2 favourite teams in the final two games.
Despite going a goal down in the first of the two games, we came back to win, meaning a draw in the last match would see us victors. The game was very tight and could have gone either way but ended a goalless draw to send us through to the finals in Colchester, which is a few days before Christmas.
The boys worked really hard and adapted brilliantly, and received plaudits from the opposition coaches and event organisers for their style of play and attitude, proudly representing the GFA Family. Please let us know if you are interested in going to support the boys in the finals and we will happily arrange for groups to go up there together!
Let’s hope they get a well-deserved early Christmas present and get a bit of silverware…..
