Aber Futsal was started in 2017 by Matthew Whilley (Wrexham futsal coach/player) with the aim of getting people playing and enjoying the game of futsal. Futsal is a very fast paced and exciting game, great for keeping fit, improving your touch on the ball and situational awareness on the court. Futsal is a 5 a-side match played indoors, with no 'fixed' positions so if you are fed up of playing your sport in cold weather or looking to improve your skills overall then come on down to one of our training sessions and meet a great bunch of lads and give futsal a go!
Despite being a relatively young club Aber Futsal has made huge strides within the university and nationally. In the first year we had no matches and just training. For the second year (2018-19) Aber Futsal entered into the Welsh National Futsal League where we finished 4th in the league coming up against some of the best teams in the country. In the same year we entered the FAW Cup (Welsh Futsal Cup) where we sadly got knocked out in the first stage but played two games in one day and put up the best game we've ever played in the second match but just couldn't get the win. This year Aber Futsal is going into the BUCS Western 2B League (bottom league but you have to start somewhere). We are hoping to carry on the success from the last two years and get promotion into the next league, however, with tough competition we are in need of some new players!

President - Joshua Brigden or 'Josh'. Hi I'm Josh and im the president of Futsal this year. i have been a member since 2017 and decided to give back to the club in my final year at uni. I am a 4th year biology student on the integrated masters course but i am also the goalkeeper for the club. Any questions or worries to do with the club just ask me and I will get back to you with an answer as soon as i can.
Treasurer - Taliesin Slatter or ‘Tal’. Member since 2019 and scored two goals in his debut season. Don’t let his experience of playing futsal for years on the streets of Spain fool you, he’s shit at the game. Occasionally scores a fluky toe poke and claims to be the big toe God. Luckily for him he’s slightly better at studying for his Engineering Physics degree, so managing the Club’s finances should be as easy as 1+1=2 for him (or so you’d think).
Secretary - Tom Luton or 'Tom'. Hi, I’m Tom and I’m secretary for the futsal club this year. I’m a third year history and politics student here at Aber and have been part of the futsal club since first year. Futsal is an enjoyable but demanding sport for me and I like that balance. Although not the best player in the side, it’s great to compete with the team and train twice a week, as well as mixing with friends. To anyone hoping to join this year we are a very friendly bunch and will make sure to give you a warm welcome, so don’t hesitate to come along to one of our training sessions and give it a try!
Coach - Joseph Wells or Joe. Member since 2017 and joint Top Goalscorer of the Year 2018-19. During last years futsal season Joe put up some impressive shots and with his powerful kick many teams were rattled. Joe is in his second year of university studying Equine Science. As well as futsal Joe has plenty of experience in football being Captain/Coach of AFC Gwatch (DIGS team) for two years and having played football since the age of 5. Joe was the president of the club last year but decided to dedicate his time to coaching the club instead of running it. any issues with training and joe is your guy..
