As Futsal continues to grow and develop in Oxfordshire we saw over 130 boys take part in the Youth Futsal Festival across the weekend.
Our local qualifying heats saw a total of fifteen teams across the U10, U12, U14 and U16 age groups battled it out to finish top of their league. These winning teams will now proudly represent Oxfordshire FA at the Regional Futsal Festival taking place next month in Surrey with the ultimate goal of progressing on to the FA National Futsal Finals.
“The event took a lot of planning and organising but I am extremely happy with the quality of Futsal which was played” commented Sarah Wood, Football Development Officer at Oxfordshire FA. “The players are getting better and better each year and it was great to see so many new teams try Futsal for the first time”.
The following teams will now represent Oxfordshire in the Regional Festivals:
U10 Boys = Oxford City FC
U12 Boys = Summertown Stars FC
U12 Girls = Crowmarsh FC
U14 Boys = Thame Boys
U14 Girls = Kidlington Youth FC
U16 Boys = The Oxford Academy School
We would like to wish all the teams the best of luck in the next round.
