King Edward VI Academy in Spilsby is celebrating sporting success after recent results.
The Academy’s Year 7 girls football team has made it through to the FA Youth Regional Futsal Finals. Futsal is a five-a-side game, normally played on a flat indoor pitch with hockey sized goals. It is played to touchlines and all players are free to enter the penalty area and play the ball over head-height. Games are 20 minutes per half, played to a stopping clock (similar to basketball) with time-outs permitted.
The Academy has also launched a new satellite club programme open to the community in which the Horncastle Belles Netball Club, Alford Hockey Club and Spilsby Tennis Club are coming into the academy to deliver sessions.
