Although you might not want to hear this, autumn isn’t far away.
The Premier League season kicks off on Saturday, meaning that the whole of the 92 professional teams are playing again, while next week sees the final cricket test of the summer begin, which is always a sign that the leaves are going to turn brown.
Happily, though, the autumn season is always a big one for small sided football in the UK. Players are looking to play after their summer holidays, people across the country join go to universities and colleges and leagues everywhere will start to fill up.
It is not just our affiliates that are gearing up for a busy time, here at the UK Minifootball Association it is all systems go too.
On September 8th we are holding the final trials for the England, Scotland and Wales teams who will play in the miniEURO2013 – after which we will be set for a frantic spell which will see all hands on deck making the final preparations for the trip to Crete.
In early October we will be flying out with around 50 players and officials to Rethmyno where all three teams will compete against the 21 other nations who are making up the championships.
We hope to make some big announcements regarding the miniEURO event in the coming weeks so watch this space!
