First year scholars named champions
Bristol Rovers Football in the Community’s flagship education project The Futsal & Education Scholarship continues to go from strength to strength as, yesterday, the B team were crowned League 2 champions of the Football League Trust Futsal League’s South Midlands Division.
The squad, consisting of first year scholars, began the course back in September and have proven themselves the best in their league at the first attempt; winning nine and losing only one of their 12 matches.
Due to the structure of the near-nationwide futsal programme, the divisions are split into six regions and Rovers compete fortnightly in Birmingham in the South Midlands Division against teams such as Bristol City and Cheltenham Town.
As reward for winning League 2, the B team will now compete in the League 2 National Finals against the other five regions’ top two teams to determine the National Champion on 7th July. We'll let you know how they get on.
