Carlos Codinha’s team exited FA Futsal Cup last weekend following 7-6 defeat away to Loughborough

Genesis Futsal Club’s journey in the FA Futsal Cup ended on Sunday after a thrilling match with Loughborough.

The two teams will be sick of the sight of each other now after doing battle three times during May.

Carlos Codinha’s side defeated Loughborough 14-10 on aggregate to reach the Grand Finals of the National Futsal Super League.

After reaching one final, Genesis were determined to reach the Grand Finals of the FA Futsal Cup, but they lost 7-6 at the Sir David Wallace Sports Hall.

It was a great advert for Futsal, however, and the Newham-based club were happy to play their part.

Codinha said: “Well done to Loughborough Futsal on a thoroughly deserved win and good luck in the Grand Finals.

“Not a good day, but we lost to a worthy adversary and I have now become a fan of the Loughborough Futsal kids. For us, we go for the Grand Finals Super League now.”

Genesis take part in the Grand Finals of the National Futsal Super League this weekend at Wolverhampton University.

Codinha’s team will take on Baku United looking to go one better than last year when they finished as runners-up.

If Gensis beat Baku United on Saturday, they will play either Birmingham or Helvecia in the final the following day.
