The league having a new format this season split the season into two phases with teams going up or down after the first phase. Having played in the Championship for the first half of the season, which was very competitive and closely fought, Spirit of Youth were relegated to League 1 in the last game. However, the team bounced back in the second phase of the season to win League 1 with a 100% record of 7 wins out of 7.
Steve’s team was also recently invited to play against the Lancashire FA North West Deaf and Partially Sighted Futsal Team (ages 14-17) at the Fulwood Leisure Centre by Steve Daley, who is currently the England visually impaired captain with over 100 caps.
