The road to the WA SFL Minor Premiership and Championship
Club Atletico Cambio Cumbre was officially established in February 2013. The club started on it’s journey participating in the SFL and made it’s debut against South Fremantle MC in Round 1, a week before the official schedule. At this time, Coach Nestor Fonseca was still overseas, and other international arrivals were yet to join the team. Due to these circumstances, Cambio Cumbre saw its first and only loss in the SFL Summer Season of 2013.
Week by week the club began to grow as it recruited new players. Though it was only in the 4th round of competition, when the most relevant signings were made. The Players, Faris Noor Rani and Yazid Omar joined the club with a lot of expectation, and desire to take their game to the next level. They were the perfect complement to other players who had already established themselves within the club, such as Daniel Cappellaro ‘D10’, Jeevan Krishnan, and Alejandro Indaburu. It would later be, this Cambio Cumbre that would go on and would win the SFL 2013 Winter competition.
The next challenge faced by the club was to find a reliable venue for training sessions, as a result a relationship was developed between the Area 5 Football center in Wembley. This relationship was not apparent until the second round of competition. Cambio Cumbre were offered the venue to use for training sessions, in trade for advertising space at the SFL, during Cambio Cumbre matches.
The establishment of a new system, one without a designated target generated controversy and a lot of critics, especially as the team was not getting the best results at the start. However, Cambio Cumbre simply kept on working, with the understanding that as with any process it was going to take some time to make the system work and obtain the results wanted. The perseverance of the clubs players paid off, as the team started to show signs of improvement and obtain the kind of results that were desired, not only on the score board but with the way in which games were won by the club. A new philosophy for Futsal within Australia, had been born.
Since this time the club has played many great matches, controlling these games with possession and dominating the course of each encounter. Due to the relative instant success of Cambio Cumbre and it’s new philosophies the club has grown exponentially and a development side has been formed. This side is often a mix with some of the new intake and established first team players, in order to help the upcoming players step up to the level of the SFL.
Cambio Cumbre’s next challenge is to play and win the Winter Season of the WA State Futsal League, commencing this Saturday at Melville Recreation Centre. The club has been strengthened with the addition of new players Brad Kneebone and Mason Vojdani, as La Cumbre will look to make another statement upon the Australian Futsal landscape.
