  1. The 16 year old girls were correct. The coach was told that if the team went he would be banned by Football NSW. Ask him if you know him.

  2. You are right Simon the 19s did go to Melbourne…..but as I said the 16’s did not and it was not the players who were threatened with reprisals….to do this worries me.. these people are supposed to care for our sport as we leave it to them to raise its profile…..Allot of people heard what they did to this team……very sad

  3. Has the 19s coach been banned? He’s been around a long time and well respected in the Futsal community.

    I still contend that girls have not been threatened with any bans as FootballNSW would be on very dangerous grounds if they did. Selection of State Coaches is always contentious so anything is possible there !!

  4. I’d like to Congratulate the girls who called themselves Sydney and competed in the Dandenong Vikings competition. A fantastic group of girls who amazed us with their skill, pace and precision. I wasn’t aware of the power struggle over futsal in NSW, but maybe the powers that be should have a chat with these girls. Its simple, they wanted to play the game – they did and they won! Well Done
    From a Victorian MUM!!!!
    Better say well done to Vic Country Under 19 Boys, a bunch of mates from Ballarat who won the Boys division too!

  5. Just clearing things up i was a member of the under 19’s Sydney City team that went to melb not the 16’s team, i was never threatened directly however there was specific mention that there was a possibility of retribution if we were to compete….ANYWAYS WE WENT! it was a fairly good tournament however take nothing away from the other state teams but constantly whilst watching there games especially the boys, i felt as if they were to come up against a NSW side it would have been almost certain domination. In our division, out of 8 teams only one team held us to a scoreline of under 10 and that was the Victorian City girls…who as always proved to be excellent opposition.
