MEMBERS of Burton Albion Community Trust have announced a collaboration with De Ferrers Academy to the start a new programme.

The initiative will kick off a 'Futsal and Education' group which will meet twice weekly and offer students a selection of sport based qualifications.

Futsal is a fast-growing indoor sport, which showcases close ball skills, increased touches, quick decision making, creativity and tactical skill.

The five-a-side game using hockey size goals and a size four ball with 30 per cent less bounce is the only officially recognised form of indoor football accepted by UEFA and FIFA and is set to become an Olympic Sport.

For more information on the Futsall programme or to apply for the course, contact 01283 565938 or bactadmin @burtonalbionfc.co.uk.

Applicants require two GSCEs at grade D or above.
