Soccer AM Futsal Cup?s flying

31 January 2014

Tune into Soccer AM on Saturday to watch this week's action from the last 32 of the Soccer AM Futsal Cup powered by NCS.

Swindon Town, West Bromwich Albion, Portsmouth and Crystal Palace were the latest sides to book their place in the last 16, as Birmingham Arena played host to Groups 3 and 4.

In Group 3, Swindon Town showed great resolve to come from behind in their opening two fixtures before a more routine victory in their final game against Scunthorpe United sealed their passage to the next round as group winners.

West Brom came from a goal behind to win against Chesterfield in their final game and ensured they booked the second qualifying spot at the Spireites' expense.

Portsmouth came from behind in their opening game against Crystal Palace to claim a late victory and took that momentum into their next two games to finish the day with maximum points in Group 4.

Palace did however recover from that early setback to claim second place thanks to wins over Preston North End and Shrewsbury Town.

Soccer AM Futsal Cup powered by NCS is comprised of student-players participating in The Football League Trust Education & Futsal programme.

The programme provides 16 to 18-year-olds with the chance to score both on and off the pitch, as they study towards a BTEC Diploma in Sport with their local professional clubs' community scheme.

Graduates of the programme often progress to University, overseas football scholarships and careers within the vibrant sports industry. Football lovers moving into sixth-form education are encouraged to apply, as places start to fill up for next season at over 50 clubs across the country.
