Futsal, which is played on a small court is a 5-a-side game of football originating in Brazil which differs from our traditional 5-a-side game.
Using a smaller and heavier ball and bigger goals the walls are not used so the ball has to be kept within the lines.
Speaking to HU17.net Paul said;
“Both myself and Joe wanted to bring sexy samba Futsal from Brazil to Beverley.”
“We wanted the lads who I play 5 and 11-a-side Football with to have a different experience of the game which encourages skilful play while helping with their technique.”
“For the first night we had a great turnout and will look to put on a further night in the next few months.”
“Going forward we are also looking to work with our friends at the Hull Futsal Team who are looking to develop a Junior Futsal League in the Hull area and help promote a form of the game and perhaps organise a friendly Futsal game against the Hull Team.”
“It was great to see some of the skills on show and we even had 3 guys from Beverley’s Brazilian community playing with u.”
“I think Futsal should be played in schools as undoubtedly it helps develops close control skills technique. With the weather we have had causing so many grass roots games to be postponed this winter, encouraging this format of the game indoors can only be a good thing for the future of our national game.”
