At the June council meeting a Futsal proposal was put forward by Bruce Vause from Gateshead SFA  which was generally well received. It was decided to disseminate this information around all member associations to determine the level of interest which would then be reported back to the September meeting.

Could you please read his proposals and then complete the entry form either way (a non entry would be also useful) to Bruce BEFORE the end of term.

If you have any questions can you please direct them straight to Bruce as he is the man with the answers.
