After an enjoyable and well earned Christmas break the U12s were back and hit the ground running with a Semi Final of the league cup against rivals Hayfield. Previous meetings against the 2 sides suggested it would be a close game and it was with the U12s narrowly losing out but they certainly didn’t have any time to be down and disheartened because they were still chasing the League title.
What can only be described as a sparklingly stunning display in the final match of the league sealed the deal for Celtic, unbeaten in the league and a goal difference of a staggering 137, they rightly were crowned Winter League Champions, Promotion and the Summer League beckons.
Crammed with action in January the U12s Futsal team headed to Platt Lane in Manchester to face the next stage on their road to St George’s Park competing in the FA Futsal Cup. After a tense group game against an accomplished and professional Bolton Futsal Club, Celtic earned a spot in the Final game against Carlisle Futsal Club. A scintillating performance by the team means they deservedly take the crown of North West Regional Futsal Champions and are due to take the long trip north to Sunderland in April as the competition continues.
