Sixth Form Futsal Success
On Thursday 14th June, Ark St Albans Sixth Form competed in their first ever College Futsal Tournament after accepting an invite from Worcester University, to play in their new annual competition.
The Squad have worked hard and have been limited to just 6 Training sessions of Futsal. This is a new sport to the group, however, they have taken to the task of learning and challenging themselves in a new environment with much passion and endeavour. Ark St Albans and Droitwitch were the only 2 Teams representing a School.
In the opening fixtures, St Albans adapted well to the speed & format of Futsal, scoring some excellently crafted team goals. The Squad were unlucky to lose 2 games and draw 1 out of their group fixtures, with the Students quickly realising how unforgiving Futsal is!
St Albans then moved in to the 'Plate' and were victorious! The Squad topped the group with 2 wins and a draw with some fantastic displays of innovation, creativity, passion, determination, skill and ultimately, collaboration!
In addition, The Chairman of Worcester University Futsal, personally sent me a message to express how impress he, and the staff were with St Albans performances, especially as this was the groups first competitive outing in a relatively new Sport.
A HUGE well done to all of the Students who represented the School with such pride:
