Over the course of September and December last year, local qualifying rounds for three strands of the FA Youth Futsal Cup were delivered by County FAs and local partners, with teams competing for a place in the regional stages of the competition.
We were delighted that several of our teams were able to represent North Riding at the Regional Round of the tournament, including Boro Rangers Under-10 and 12, York Railway Institute Girls, Bootham Girls Futsal Club and York Futsal.
Congratulations to all teams and a special mention goes to Bootham Girls Futsal Club and York Futsal, who progressed into next month’s semi-finals.
Chris from Bootham Girls Futsal Club said: “Wow, what a fantastic performance from every single player. I was so proud of them all; they worked so hard and deserved to go through. Huge thank you to Hartlepool Utd, they gave us a fantastic game which was played in a brilliant spirit.”
Meanwhile, Kat from York Railway Institute Girls added: “Going to the Beacon of Light to represent North Riding was great fun and gave the girls a fabulous experience of futsal against some excellent opposition. The RI U14 Jaguars were unbeaten on the day in some adrenalin filled matches, and were proud to finish second in the group.”
