FC Salisbury United have started life in the Futsal Super League very well, having won both of their opening two games.

Wins against Tranmere Rovers and Birmingham has left the side currently third in the league, behind Reading Escolla and London Helvecia.

For their trip to Birmingham Connor Millar and Luke Williams were both missing from the travelling squad but it was a chance for Geoff Bonner to show his depth and in came George Plank and Diogo Martinho.

Early goals from Luke Ballinger and Russ Parsons gave Salisbury a two goal lead but were pegged back, further goals from Luke Ballinger, Bruno Gibin and former Saints Futsal player Rafael Ramos in the second half, as they got the upper hand on the Midlands side.

With the score at 4-4 Salisbury’s Jacob Wise received a Red Card for an off-the-ball incident, but Birmingham failed to capitalise.

With five minutes left on the clock Salisbury were 8-6 up and withstood Birmingham’s efforts and eventually came out 7-8 winners, to give them maximum points from their opening two games of the season.

Head coach Geoff Bonner told JournalSport about his team’s excellent start and said: “I think we’ve surprised everyone in the Futsal world in the first two games.”

Adding: “Now the opposition know we’re no mugs it may be more difficult but we’re not kidding ourselves. Every game is going to be competitive and tough. We need to remind ourselves that is a great start to life in the Super league but that it’s a marathon and not a sprint.”
