Ju­nior team flies south to take on Perth’s best

Pilbara News - - Pilbara Sport -

A team of young Kar­ratha fut­sal play­ers has flown down to com­pete against teams in Perth in a week­long com­pe­ti­tion.

North West Elite Fut­sal Academy formed a team of ju­niors only nine weeks ago, but nine-year-old cap­tain Jye San­der said the team was still out to win the com­pe­ti­tion.

“We’re ex­cited and I hope the other teams are good sports,” he said.

“We’re all get­ting to­gether more, turn­ing into one team. “I think we’re go­ing to do well.” San­der said he loved the fast­paced and highly skilled na­ture of the game.

NWEFA di­rec­tor Jess Byrne said she was proud of the devel­op­ment of the play­ers in such a short time.

“To get them to where they are is a mas­sive credit to the coach and par­ents for help­ing out and sup­port­ing us,” she said.

Coach Steph Oddo said the boys were look­ing for­ward to the com­pe­ti­tion. She hoped the play­ers would have op­por­tu­ni­ties to go on to big­ger and bet­ter things from this ex­pe­ri­ence.
