added on Friday 5th June 2009

Top Futsal teams from across the South West of England arrived at Swindon on Saturday 6th June 2009 for the FA cup play-offs. The Futsal was fast and the competition furious as the regional teams battled it out for the coveted entry into the Futsal FA cup finals to be held in Sheffield later this year. The London based team Genesis won the group 2 section and local team Chippenham Futsal club won the group 1 section.  The final between the two sides was closely contested with Gensis coming out the eventual winners 2-1. Chris Ballinger manager for Chippenham said after the match, " we were disappointed not to have won particularly after dominating the second held when we were drawing  1-1. However the playing experience here @ Futsal in Swindon is first class and we will continue playing here to qualify for the event next year".
