Blackpool FC skipper Danny Pugh is an admirer of Futsal and spoke highly about the Futsal delivery by Blackpool FC Community Trust. Danny said, "“Futsal is a fantastic opportunity to improve certain aspects of your football game. It improves your first touch, masters your technique and develops your decision-making skills when in possession. Many great players have credited the role Futsal has played in their careers, and the BTEC courses offered by Blackpool FC Community Trust cover Futsal if you choose to go down that pathway.” For more information on our Futsal programme, contact our Football Development Officer, Alex Taylor on 01253 348691
