This week we held our first ever Boys Futsal Cup competition. The prize for the winning team was the opportunity to represent Accrington Stanley in the regional finals early next year. 7 teams from across Hyndburn, Rossendale and the Ribble Valley contested the competition.

The group stages of the competition where close with every team taking points off everyone. Eventually the group ended with Bacup & Rawtenstall Grammar School B qualifying to face Moorland School in the 3rd/4th place playoff where Moorland came out on top.

The final was a close encounter between St Christophers & BRGS A. Eventually the game finished 0-0 and needed to be decided on penalties. St Christophers were crowned champions, winning the shoot-out 4-2.

Well done to everyone who took part and thank you for bracing the terrible weather to make the event happen, also a massive thank you to our Btec students who volunteered to referee the games, Jordan Lewis, Cameron McDermott, Tom Doran & Alex Whewell.
