Latest news from the Essex FA

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.
