Boro Futsal v. Sheffield

This Sunday Middlesbrough’s high flying futsal team will face their toughest task of the season so far, at Thornaby Pavilion where they play host to Northern Champions, and national runners-up Sheffield.

Boro have started the season in impressive form winning their first three and will be hoping to keep up that run with a win over Sheffield. The corresponding match last year was an incredible 7-6 win, coming back from 2-6 with only eight minutes on the clock and it was also the record attendance at a Boro match.

A big crowd is expected once again on Sunday with the final home game of 2011 being designated a family day.

Children will be able to get their faces painted and there will be cupcake stall. There will also be a junior exhibition game with Marton Juniors, who will also be mascots for the day!

Manager Damon Shaw wants to see a big crowd.

“We are top of the league and we are on a great run of form. This run has coincided with the fans coming to matches and long may it continue. We are aiming for the national title for the fans, for the town and for the whole of the North East.

“Sunday’s match will be one of high quality and drama no doubt and with no football this weekend, it’s a perfect opportunity to attend your first futsal match. We’ve got a few things planned around the game and we hope we can attract some families.”
