First and second teams complete seasons this weekend
Two of Town’s representative teams have qualified for the Football League Trust Futsal League finals, which will be held in Birmingham this weekend.
Town’s A team finished the season in first place of the Northern League 1 after completing the season unbeaten and travel to Birmingham for the League 1 National Finals on Saturday. The Terriers will compete in group fixtures between noon and 3pm against Cheltenham Town, Chesterfield and Swindon Town ahead of a possible national final at 5.30pm.
The C team has also qualified for the national League 2 finals after finishing as runners up in the northern section and will compete against Scunthorpe United, Southampton, Crystal Palace, West Bromwich Albion and Bristol Rovers on Sunday.
These national finals cap a great first season for Town’s Futsal teams on the pitch – and we’re recruiting now for the new September 2013 intake!
As well as the action on the pitch, Town’s Futsal players – both male and female – complete a BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in Sport; a two year programme for 16-18 year olds who wish to pursue a career in sport.
The 2012/13 academic year was the first time Town’s Community Department launched this qualification and the team is now in the process of enrolling new students to start in September.
