Speaking after the tournament, Head Coach, Chris Day, said: ''It was a fantastic chance for the boys to challenge themselves against some of the best Futsal players from the south, as the players all love Futsal as a sport in its own right, and also the way it helps them be better footballers.''
James Chatfield from Eastbourne Borough Under-16s Girls added: “It was a very well organised tournament with a great atmosphere on the day, competitive but fun.
“Our girls thoroughly enjoyed it!”
Ryan Payne of AFC Langney Under-10s Boys said: Everyone had an amazing time, and we’re all so grateful for the opportunity. Hopefully we will be back to compete at the Under-12s level next time!”
Finally, our Development Officer, Paul Ofei-Kwatia said: “I’d like to extend my thanks to the Sussex Women and Girls, Horsham and District Youth, Mid Sussex Youth and Sussex Sunday Youth Leagues for their support with the provision of Futsal in the County,” he said.
“We have seen continued interest in Futsal with more teams participating and we are proud to have a team representing Sussex in the Pokémon Youth Futsal Cup National Finals for the second year running.
“We look forward to working with more leagues, clubs, teams and coaches to deliver more opportunities for our youth and adult players.”
