Futsal Tournment

In April, South Marches District  had their first ever Futsal Tournament. For those who don't know: Futsal, or futsala, is a variant of football played on a hard court, smaller than a football pitch, and mainly indoors. It can be considered a version of five-a-side football. Futsal is played between two teams of five players each, one of whom is the goalkeeper. Unlimited substitutions are permitted. Unlike some other forms of indoor football, the game is played on a hard court surface delimited by lines; walls or boards are not used. Futsal is also played with a smaller ball. The surface, ball and rules create an emphasis on improvisation, creativity, and technique as well as ball control and passing in small spaces.

Approximately 100 Beavers from the 1st, 4th, 7th & 10th Hereford and Holmer Scout Groups took part. It was an amazing tournament, everyone enjoyed it and at the end it was voted by the Beavers that there should be another one next year. All the Beavers went home with a medal each. Many thanks must go to Joe and the two referees from Herefordshire Football Association for their hard work and organisation.

Congratulations to Tupsley Jupiter for winning the tournament.

Well done to all the young people who took part ...
