How are you and the team feeling about the game?
Both the 1st and 2nd teams are incredibly excited ahead of their respective matches. Both have come off the back of fantastic BUCS seasons, with many players new to the sport. The 1st team face a difficult challenge against a Beckett team that finished 4th in the top division this year, but we are relishing the prospect of causing a major upset.
Meanwhile the 2nd team have already played Beckett 2nd team twice this year in the BUCS league. Whilst they lost both matches, they were extremely close encounters, and they will be hoping to enact revenge in the biggest game of them all.
Who’s the one to watch on your team?
One to watch for the 1st team is Chihiro Esaki. An international student for this year, he amazed the committee at his initial trial and has been a revelation for the side this year. His mixture of fast feet, silky skills, and sharp shooting will prove a lethal weapon for Varsity.
Meanwhile, for the 2nd team, the player to watch is Luke Dunkley. New to futsal this year, he has come on leaps and bounds, taking a real leadership role for the side, and proving a good fit for the 1st team when called upon.
And how will you be preparing for the game?
With limited time between the return from the Easter break and the match itself, we will be using training sessions to develop a strong game plan that we hope will be able to lead us to victory.
