A few weeks ago we brought you news that Onside apprentice, Andy, would be representing England's Visually Impaired Futsal Team at the 'Co-ordinations' Tournament in Austria on the 28th October. Well, we're happy to report that Andy picked up a bronze medal as England came 3rd in the competition! And it could have been ever better, as they missed out on a silver on goal difference only.
During the tournament they were winners over Ireland and hosts Austria, drew with France (who came 2nd in the competition) and lost to the overall winners Ukraine. England's 3rd place finish also means that they should be among the teams to be selected for next year's World Championships in France. Well done Andy, you've done us all proud!
