On Sunday, the Division 2 North gets back underway with Manchester Futsal Development host Billingham Town Futsal Club.

The match will part of a double header, following Manchester Futsal Club’s match with London City Futsal at the National Cycling Centre.

Development team coach Russell Fryer said that the team has returned to training last week and have shown a good attitude.
“For the remainder of the season we have included an increased tempo and intensity for all training sessions, as we look to build on a great start to the season.

“To the team’s credit they all responded and you could clearly see they had worked hard throughout, so I am confident that fitness won’t be an issue for this week’s game v Billingham,” Fryer said.

Last time these sides met it was a very physical match with a strong pivot up top who dictated play.

“Billingham ran us very close in the game up in the North East and were a physical side, who were very enthusiastic and passionate.”

Billingham have signed a couple of new players including England U19 player Johnny Lazenby, so this match could be a classic.

Fryer has said the goals for the remainder of the season is to grow the players into future first team members.

“I made mine and the other coaches goals clear to the players last week, as I explained about our re-focus on creating future players for the first team and stressed that his should be their ultimate aim.”

“With that in mind, we have had a few of our lads training with the seniors the last couple of weeks to give them a taste of what they can expect and also demonstrate to them the level they must attain.”
