Group B was not as close but equally as dramatic. A spirited Middlesbrough side were undone by the experience of the champions in Group B’s opener, as Helvecia ran out 8-3 winners.

Their win, in what was a fabulous finale, kept their domination of English Futsal intact and ensured that Coach, Ronaldo Negrao will get another opportunity at the UEFA Futsal Cup in 2012-13.
Mohammed Nurul Hoque chairman of Tower Hamlets FC and Helvecia Futsal Club has been listed on the 100 British Bangladeshi Power & Inspiration 2014.
The Final was simply fantastic. It had everything as both teams put it all on the line in their fight for glory. In the end, despite the best efforts of player-of-the-tournament Lucas Totti Ferras and co, it was Helvecia who reigned supreme, lifting a fifth English title with a 5-2 victory and booking their place in next season’s UEFA Futsal Cup.
In the senior event, Saturday’s group games epitomised Futsal. The games were end-to-end, the tactical war fierce and the drama of the fly goalkeeper gave supporters a real opportunity to see what makes Futsal special.
The competition was intense, the standard of Futsal on show was fantastic and the game was played in the best of spirits throughout the entire weekend.

Goals from Hereira (2), Raoni Medina (2) and Lima proved enough to beat off the valiant Lions side, whose goals came from Luke Ballinger and Lucas Totti to lift The Cup again.
This was in recognition of his work taking Tower Hamlets FC to the Essex Senior League (Step 5 of the National League System) and overlooking the clubs progress in the FA Cup, and their success in the FA Carlsberg Vase in the 2011-12 season which saw them only three games from a Wembley final!

With a 7-1 win over London United Futsal on Sunday 13th March, Helvecia and Blake are now preparing for the intensity of the knock out rounds and hopefully the Finals.
Group A was as close as it gets. Debuting Oxford Lions were victorious over northern kings Manchester in game one, before defeat to local boys Genesis in game number two left the group wide open.
16-year-old Bradley Mills became one of the youngest goalscorers in Grand Finals history when he netted one of Boro’s three and his performance was such that he played a big part in their second game, an 8-4 victory over Team Bath.
Boro’s win left both teams needing a victory for Sion Kitson’s yellow army in the final game of the day to unseat the champions. It was not to be, as a dominant Helvecia display saw them run out 5-1 winners, booking their place in Sunday’s finale.
Blake Stewart is an Aussie is in love of two games. With a football pedigree that boasts Fulham FC as a junior and Hercules Alicante and Lleida in the Spanish 3rd division, Blake is now playing futsal again in the UK. As a core member of the most famous futsal team in England, 5 times national champions London Helvecia Futsal and UEFA Champions league regulars, Blake has helped the team qualify for the FA Futsal Cup final knock out phase again.
New head coach Luis Marimón comments, “Blake is a talented young player that has cemented himself into the Helvecia line up, he can go a long way if he continues to train hard and stay humble”.
On playing for the Australian national team, “I haven’t heard from anyone within the Australian set up yet, but of course I would love to play for my country. I will be eligible to play for England next year but if Australia comes knocking I will be there.”
Well done to Nurul, and keep up the hard work!!!!
It was a disappointing result for Damon Shaw’s side, whose fantastic fan base made the long journey down from Teesside. With Helvecia carrying a noisy following of their own, the atmosphere in this game was the best of the weekend.
The magnificent Sporthouse in Barking was the venue for what many were calling the best Grand Finals line up to date, a real sign of the progress that English Futsal is making. Straight from the kick-off on Saturday morning, it was clear that this was going to be a special weekend.
The entire weekend was a superb advert for the game and anyone in and around the building across the two days will have been instantly drawn by the thrills, spills and high octane drama of the game.
Blake “I feel I am growing a lot, my game is improving all the time with Helvecia. I learnt how to speak Spanish when I played for CF Hercules, so that helps me a lot with Coach Luis. I just want to play as much as I can and hopefully help Helvecia lift the trophy again”.

All-conquering London side claim fifth consecutive title as FA National Futsal League draws to a thrilling conclusion at Grand Finals in Barking’s Sporthouse.
Genesis needed a point, Oxford needed a Manchester win and Marcos Leon’s men needed an eight goal victory to qualify for the Grand Final. Against all of the odds they very nearly got their wish, eventually winning 7-3 after putting in a frighteningly good first-half display. That put the Lions in The Final in their debut National League season.
