The Norfolk and Suffolk Youth League hosted the next stage of its Futsal Experience on Sunday when under nine teams played 15 matches and then split into groups and played a champions league format competition.

Teams from Bohemians Lions and Tigers, Gorleston Rangers, Acle United, Caister Roma and Bungay Town played as Barcelona, Paris St Germain, Bayern Munich, Juventus, FC Porto and Real Madrid.

After the group matches were completed sudden death took place until there was a Paris St Germain and Juventus final. The match was decided by a two-goal victory in a very fast and skilful final.

The Futsal Experience continues this week with under 10s and completes the season with the under 11s in March.

Sole Bay’s 2-1 win over the Gunners of Kirkley and Pakefield and Beccles Town Wasps 3-1 win over Belton completed the under 16 semi-finals in the Shield competition, but the league title is still far from certain.
