I was playing for Lotto Allstars and the game finished 4-4. The buzz before, during and after the game was exhilarating and at least 500 people stayed behind to discuss Futsal. Match you remember (-): There are many but the most disappointing would have been losing a National League semi final to Melbourne Buffalos in 1988. Goal you remember: There are many but the one that comes to mind changed a game. It was in the 1986 National League and I was playing for the Sydney Tornadoes against the Mackay Monarchs. Losing 2-0 with 5 minutes to go I was able to squeeze a toepoke inside the far corner from a very acute angle. I was on the junction of the sideline and the corner. The impetus from the goal allowed us to win the game 3-2. Career: Football Played youth league when I was younger but then I concentrated on my passion when my soccer coach told me to give Futsal away. I have to thank him as the game of Futsal has brought me many years of wonderful memories. Futsal (As a player) Australian Futsal Squad Member - 1984 to 1988.
