Last season Monty Bouttell certainly made an impression. With only 17 years of age, the very young English player started scoring goals... and never stopped. By the end of the season, his Cambridge United side sat third in the FA Futsal Super League and he had scored an outstanding 31 goals, the second most prolific record of the year.
For the 18/19 campaign the bar will be no doubt risen for last season's emerging talent, as he joins England's most yielding futsal setup: Loughborough. Already part of the England pathway, when Monty meets this preseason the Loughborough cohort of his fellow England U21s, no doubt his eyes will be set on bigger prizes and he will be hoping to connect with Captain Will Rooke and consolidated veteran Jason Kilbride, both England senior internationals. Joao Almeida, Loughborough's Head Coach, will have the enviable task of pushing this young talent even further than his compatriot Luis Mendoça admirably did at Cambridge.
I am excited to be joining Loughborough and the IFA for the new Super League and BUCS season, and looking forward to the challenge to continue to develop and to proving myself in this new environment.– Monty Bouttell
Monty will be part both of Loughborough Futsal Club's Super League team, and of the Students' team that will defend the BUCS Futsal Championship Gold regained last season, hoping to become the first ever team to retain the Championship. On the academic side, an Applied Sports Science with Management BSc (Hons) degree will be his other challenge.
We look forward to giving Monty the warmest of welcomes to The Bubble and want to wish him the uttermost success with us.
