The Boswells School Year 9 Futsal squad crowned Essex runners-up
The Year 9 Boys Futsal squad at The Boswells School, Chelmsford, have ended their season as Essex runners-up after taking part in the Essex Futsal 5s Finals at the Copper Box at the Olympic Park, London.
The boys represented mid-Essex after winning the regional qualifier tournament at St John Payne School in February.
PE teacher Callum Ridgway said: "The second place finish means that the boys ended their Futsal season as Essex runners-up, a remarkable achievement given the strength of Futsal in the county as it continues to go from strength-to-strength.
He added: "The boys did brilliantly to reach this round by winning the mid-Essex tournament and can be very proud of their second place finish.
"Whilst we didnâ€™t get the result weâ€™d have liked the boys played really well throughout the tournament and earned them a chance to play at the Copper Box, a wonderful experience."
Futsal training has now finished for the summer but will resume in September.
