We are looking forward to our opening game and expect it to be a challenging start.There's a lot of hard work to be done between now and then in order to ensure we are ready for the season ahead, but we are certainly looking forward to seeing what we can achieve with the new squad. We are looking at incorporating some U16 players from the club as well as some familiar faces and some exciting international talent. Futsal is definitely a priority for clubs and parents looking to strengthen their technique and ability; and this strengthens the competition across the board.
