Have your say

An inaugural indoor five-a-side football competition is taking place at the weekend.

The first Sir Isaac Newton Futsal Tournament will be played at The Meres leisure centre on Sunday.

Eight senior male teams will contest the competition – Grantham United, Lincoln City Futsal, Peterborough United Futsal, Black Eagle Futsal, University of Manchester Futsal, Pumas Futsal Club, Corby Futsal Club and Seca Peli United.

Sponsored by Johnsons Stalbridge Linen Services, Grantham United club sponsors, the tournament starts at 9am and is scheduled to finish at 7pm. Free entry to spectators.

Grantham United YFC is a brand new youth community project.

It was started last year in December with former coaches from Grantham Flames U12, Paulo Pires, Ian Dunstan and Josh Dobbs.

The club has a senior Futsal team in the Nottingham League, and they also have quite a few new projects going on.

The U13 team will compete next year in the Mid Lincs League. They have started a U8 team but still waiting to have more players to build a full team. The Futsal ladies’ team also still need to find more players.
