In January 2012 Sport London E Benfica Futsal team made club history in the clubs first attempt in a competitive Futsal league. Managed by Jose’ Viana SLBF took part in the Middx Futsal 5’s league, SLBF went 12 games unbeaten drawing 1 game to become Middx Futsal 5’s Champions. One thing was for certain this team is here to stay! SLBF play a quick and aggressive attacking style with a very strong defence the question is after gaining promotion to The National 2nd Div South could they maintain their style of play?
Well in the season break SLBF played a 3 team friendly at The Birmingham Futsal Arena against Div 1 North Liverpool Futsal Club and Div 1 Midlands Birmingham Futsal Club. The question of SLBF being able to maintain their style of play was answered with a 3-2 victory over BFC and an 8-8 draw against LFC finishing top of the friendly table against two teams a league above!
The Middx Futsal 5’s league 2012-2013 kicked off in September and SLBF are back to defend their title. Winning their first match against Kuwait 9-1 and their second match 6-3 against 14 Stars SLBF remain unbeaten in the Futsal 5’s League.
On 21st of October The Div 2 South campaign was started with a 5-3 away victory against Maccabi GB at The Sport House. So SLBF are also off to a good start in The Nationals with an away fixture against bottom of the table FC Enfield on the 28/10/12. Let’s hope they continue to make history with their unbeaten run which now stands at 17 games 15 wins 2 draws 0 losses.
