Teens selected for capital occasion
PARMELIA resident Kindle Valderrama and Rockingham resident Marko Bulatovic will travel to Canberra with their Under-15 squad in January to represent WA in the 37th Football Federation Australia Futsal National Championships.
All squads will play against states and regions from around Australia from January 8 to 12.
Two Under-12 teams will join the Under-13, Under-14 and Under-15 squads.
Squads have been training for 14 weeks.
Football West development officer Garry Church said he would travel with the squads as team manager, and would be joined by Clive Workum and Football West National Premier Leagues operations co-ordinator Ben Fraser.
“It’s a great achievement for each of these players to be selected to represent their State at the Championships and to raise the profile of Futsal in Australia,” he said.
“I am confident the players travelling will benefit from the experience of competing on a national stage and against a high standard of opposition.”
Sean D’Arcy will coach the U12 Black Swans, while Victor Brauner will take on the U12 Gold Swans. Salv Todaro will lead the U13s, Dan Evans the U14s and Alex Herrera will coach the U15s.
