Players aged nine or ten in school year five are being invited to Futsal training on Thursdays from 6:30-8pm at Barking & Dagenham College in Dagenham Road, Rush Green.

With a smaller, weighted ball and a smaller pitch - encouraging better close control, teamwork and possession on the floor - each player will touch the ball many more times during a game of Futsal than they do even in mini-soccer.

If you’re interested, supply your child’s full name and date of birth together with your telephone number and address by phone on (07803) 127559 or via email at info@teamfutsal.com.

It’s £5 per session, and volunteers are welcome.

Dagenham & Redbridge are hosting the Dagenham Community Day on Sunday May 18 and hoping to build upon last year’s event which attracted over 1,000 people who enjoyed the attractions, displays and entertainment.

In 2014, the committee are planning a five-a-side competition on the Daggers’ pitch, children’s fancy dress and stalls in the car park for all the family to enjoy.

The event will run between 11am and 4pm, and anyone interested in running a stall at the event should call Lisa on 020 8532 7329 or email lisa.flannery@bdcvs.org.uk.
