Our year 4 and 5 girls participated in the Enfield PE Teams Futsal tournament on Tuesday 30th January. This was the first time our girls had experienced playing futsal and they thoroughly enjoyed it.
Futsal is an exciting, fast-paced small sided football game that is widely played across the world. Futsal is a five-a-side game, normally played on a flat indoor pitch with hockey sized goals and a size four ball with a reduced bounce. Many of the top world class footballers played Futsal in their youth and credit it with supporting their footballing development; players of the calibre of Pele, Ronaldinho, Kaka, Lionel Messi to name but a few of the South American legends all played and enjoyed Futsal. On the European stage Cristiano Ronaldo, Deco, Xavi and Cesc Fabregas, amongst many others, have played Futsal to develop their skills.
The girls competed in 5 matches; winning two and losing 3. A big well done to: Manal, Kaleice, Aishat, Caitlin and Harmony. Harmony scored an impressive 4 goals throughout the tournament and Aishat scored 1.
