MGBNEWFUTSALMaccabi GB futsal’s third game of the season was always going to be a tough fixture as they came up against the five-times National League champions, Helvecia.

Going into the game Maccabi GB had suffered heavy defeats in their opening League matches and, with Alex Olcot, Josh Phillips and Scott Shulton all out of action, this was to be an unwanted hat trick of games that MGB Futsal would not have their most experienced team out on court.

The game was close in the opening stages with Kurrant leading counter-attacks and rattling the post. Helvecia had not got into their rhythm and Maccabi GB were defending deep, frustrating their opponents and looking to continue the barrage on the counter.

The deadlock was broken after just seven minutes and the floodgates opened thereafter, with Helvecia racing to a six-goal lead before half-time. After the break the home side’s superior passing game opened up the Maccabi GB defence at will and the scoreline was once again a huge one against MGB.

Their next opponents are Baku – the only professional side who have progressed into the main draw of the UEFA Futsal Cup. They have the likes of Barcelona in their group and it goes without saying, will be another huge test for the Community’s top Futsal side. The match takes place on Sunday 2 November at the Olympic Park Copperbox, 12:30pm KO.
