Futsal Cup Area Finals
Teams from Bassingbourn Village College represented Cambridge United at the Area Finals of the Football League Trust's Futsal Cup in January, having progressed from their respective inter-school competitions held at Swavesey Village College before Christmas.
Both teams made it to the Semi-Finals, narrowly missing out against strong teams from MK Dons and Stevenage. The Girls topped their group, not losing a game, and beat the eventual winners 3-0 in the group stage. Bassingbourn teacher, Matt Budd said: "This was an excellent result, as they were playing teams that had much more experience (and were older). The girls played some excellent passing football. Player of the Tournament was Mia (but special mention goes to Rhyia for her quadruple save in the Semi-Final - amazing!)".
Talking about the Boys' run to the Semi-Final of their own tournament, Matt Budd added: "The Boys were excellent in attack, coming second in the group, losing narrowly to the eventual winners. Moment of the day was the hattrick by Ollie against Stevenage."
Ross Brooks, U's Futsal Development Officer, said: "We're delighted with how both teams did in the Area Finals, and that the boys and girls were able to put some of the coaching they have received into practice. Our work with Bassingbourn has consisted of a number of sessions for Year 7-11 boys and girls during curricular and extra-curricular time, delivered by Luke Chadwick and our Academy staff. Futsal is a brilliant tool for development, and it’s something that Bassingbourn has encouraged their students to participate in."
The Futsal Cups are just one branch of the growing offer from Cambridge United, with a number of open-access Futsal Development Centres also being delivered. For more information please contact Ross Brooks at email@example.com.
