This Sunday June 4th the Leyton Score Centre will host the the first of two weekends of the London Futsal League play offs.
From 13.00 to 17.00 the eight best teams will be fighting for their slots in the semifinals which will take place on the 11th of June.
Most teams have been preparing this important matches with friendly matches during the last few weeks. The challenge absolutely deserves that effort and great futsal is guaranteed at the Eastern London sports venue on Sunday.
At 1pm the London Bulls will play against Queen Mary Futsal Club. The Spaniards have been one of the most consistent squads during the whole League, however, now in a bigger court, the challenge is greater and the talent and strength of the university guys is not something to underestimate.
Just one hour later, at 2pm, a top game involving Newham and River Lea. Any of the teams winning here is going to be a tough opponent for any other reaching the semi-final. Davide and Chris, two of the most charismatic coaches of the league, will see their teams trying to make the way to the finals in a game that is expected to be extremely competitive.
At 3 pm London International Futsal Club will have the game against Haringey. Getting to the final and who, knows, winning the League would be icing on the cake for this team that is going to be playing the National League this season. Haringey will have to make good use of their physique and the crazily amazing street 5-a-side skills of some its components, against a truly well organized team, led by the scoring ability of number #7 Jorge Escribano, top scorer of the team.
In the last game of the quarter finals Chiswick Futsal will face St. John’s Deaf FC. Chiswick certainly has experience in top level games – we can’t forget they were playing FA Cup this season – and as a consolidated and well managed club this match shouldn’t cause them too much nightmares. However, St. John’s is not here to make any concession either. They got to this stage for their own merits and they are a great mix of young talents and experienced players.
There is more at stake, indeed. At least 3 player are on the race for the top goal scorers. The matches on Sunday offers further chances to secure positions on the top of the scoring list and can be a step forward or a fall for any of those players.
Regardless of the results, the matches will definitely be exciting and we will surely have some surprises at the end of the match day.
