NEWTOWN were the winners of the inaugural men's futsal masters competition.

Run by Exeter City's Community Charitable Trust, 12 teams competed for the title, which Newtown sealed after beating North Tawton 3-1 in the final.

It is hoped that the competition, which took place at St Peter's CofE School in Heavitree, will see more teams join the first ever men's futsal league in Exeter, which will be starting on Sunday, January 6 at St James High School in Beacon Heath.

For the uninitiated, futsal is a fast form of indoor football with five players per side and is all about quick passing.

It is one of the fastest-growing sports in the world and is the only form of indoor football recognised by FIFA.

"If you play five-a-side with a group of friends or colleagues come and give futsal a go – you won't be disappointed," said Jamie Vittles, the head of community for the trust.

For more information or to register your team in the new league, email jamie.vittles@exetercityfc.co.uk or phone 01392 255611.
