FC SALISBURY UNITED player Connor Millar who scored 29 goals for the club this season, was recently selected for the Northern Ireland futsal team for the first time.

Northern Ireland went to San Marino and played two games, and Millar was involved in the country's first ever international futsal win.

The team played San Marino twice. They lost 2-1 in the first game, but got the win in the second game courtesy of a 57th minute goal by Belfast United player Ciaran Donaghy.

Millar, who was Salisbury’s top goal scorer last season, will be part of the team which will make its debut in the National Futsal Super League next season.

The newly capped player told JournalSport: “It was with great delight to be selected, to represent your country in any sport but especially futsal is an honour.

“I wouldn’t have been able to achieve this dream if it wasn’t for my fellow team mates at FC Salisbury United and my manager Geoff Bonner.”

FC Salisbury United finished second in the Division Two Midlands and West league this season, scoring an impressive 145 goals in 14 games.

The Northern Ireland futsal team only competed for the first time in December 2016 when they faced Wales in the Home Nations Championship in Cardiff.

Connor said: “To make history out in San Marino by achieving our first ever futsal international victory was amazing.”

As well as being the club’s top goal scorer, he also received the supporter’s player of the year award and the player’s player of the year award.

FC Salisbury United boss Geoff Bonner told JournalSport that he was very proud of Connor: “He always works hard to improve his game and is one of the nicest people you are likely to meet off the court.

“It was no surprise that not only did he get the call up to the Northern Ireland squad, but he assisted the only goal of the game in Northern Ireland’s first ever international win.”
