BECCLES Middle School Year 5 futsal team are busy preparing for the national futsal finals tomorrow.

After winning the Suffolk County competition with a 5-2 victory over Copplestone Middle School, the boys will be travelling to the English Institute of Sport at Sheffield to represent Suffolk against the best teams in the country.

Futsal is a cross between Brazilian beach soccer and five-a-side. It is played throughout the world and many countries now have a professional league.

Ex-England futsal player Jamie Godbold visited the school last week to share some tactics and lead a training session. The session lasted almost two hours and Jamie was impressed with the skill level of the boys.
