U13 FUTSAL TOURNAMENT

BOURNEMOUTH COLLEGIATE ARE 2018 U13 BOYS FUTSAL CHAMPIONS

With heavy rain and occasional snow flurries outside it was perfect weather for an afternoon of futsal with the ISFA U13 Boys Futsal taking place at Brunel University, organised in partnership with Kingston Grammar School.

A maximum of 12 schools entered into the first ever ISFA futsal competition for U13 boys with the competitors split into two groups of six for the group stages. The standard of futsal throughout both groups was excellent, with groups were strongly contested and going down to the final set of fixtures to confirm who qualified. Group A saw Bournemouth Collegiate and St Johns Leatherhead finished tied at the top with both schools going through to the quarter finals, whilst Group B saw Brighton College top the group with City of London finishing as runners up.

The standard of futsal continued to improve in the knockout stages with two very competitive semi finals. Bournemouth Collegiate defeated City of London in the first semi final, whilst Brighton College were victorious over St Johns Leatherhead. The final itself could not have been closer, with the score level at 1-1 going into the final minute, Bournemouth Collegiate created one final chance which they took to claim a 2-1 victory and victory in the inaugural ISFA U13 Boys Futsal Final.

ISFA National Football Development Manager Ian Bent was delighted with the success of the day; “Its great to see so many schools taking part here today and supporting us to develop futsal within independent schools. Huge thanks must go to Kingston Grammar School, and in particular Martyn Hall, for organising todays event, todays referees, and to Brunel University for providing such a great venue. ISFA are committed to growing these competitions and working alongside schools and partners to provide schools with more opportunities to play futsal.”

The Boys U14 and U15 competitions take place on Sunday 11th March at the Guildford Spectrum. For further information please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
