Interview from the captain…
Do you feel like it took a lot of team work?
Yes, because we were the only school there so we had to work together to beat anal futsal teams.
Did it take a lot of training to get that far?
Yes, we trained every Tuesday and Thursday.
How did it feel to win?
Really good, we knew we had a chance when we beat Hertford, just had to finish the job off as we had already played the better teams.
Where do you go from now??
NATIONALS!!!!! We have to train hard to be the best team in England!!!
Best of luck boys and Mr Walsh!!
