History of the DEA Indoor Soccer Club
The DEA Indoor Soccer Club is talented and tough to beat. We are the team that everyone loves to hate but hates to play.   

The core of the DEA Indoor Soccer Club dates back many years. Some of the players have been playing indoor soccer since the early 1980's. For those who remember, these were the days of the over grown tennis ball on the tennis courts of the old Indian Ridge Tennis Facility, now known as the YMCA Allard Center. We then moved to the Deans Carpet Warehouse playing in the Manchester Indoor Soccer League. With boards and indoor/outdoor carpet as turf, this was quite an improvement from Indian Ridge, except for the bar upstairs. Deans Carpet needed the space so the indoor soccer was out. We played for a year at Topspin in Windham or Hudson until they deflated the building one day. Next we would travel to the Soccer Haus facility in Peabody, MA. What a hike, but there was some great competition, battling those Salem State boys. We would do this for a few years. Until We were all very happy to hear that Manchester Indoor Soccer had built a new facility in Bedford, NH, which would come to be known as Rising Stars Sports Facility.   DEA had found a home. We would stay here for years winning many championships, as well as, one State Championship title in 2000.

As indoor soccer became more and more popular, the Rising Stars facility was out grown quickly. DEA found themselves playing at midnight, on odd nights and on the small field too many times. DEA complained but the Rising Stars management continued to renege on their promise to build an additional field.   In 2001, DEA would win the Division 1 Championship at Rising Stars for the last time. Following this season, DEA Indoor would break its long term alliance with Rising Stars and move to Bow's Fieldhouse Sports Complex for the 2002 season.

This proved to be a wise decision. DEA would become the team to beat in Bow. Playing on better fields and always on Tuesdays, DEA found a new home.

After playing the first session, DEA would be undefeated with an 11-0-0 record. DEA went on to capture the 2002-03 Division 1 Championship in session #1. DEA would get bumped out of the playoffs in the second session by the scrappy Concord Soccer Club.   

Fieldhouse Sports expanded its facilities in the off season to include an additional state of the art padded turf field and carries two referees at each match. All that without asking...

The next season, 2003-04, DEA would capture their second Championship at Bow in as many years. After loosing in the playoffs to long time rival Amherst in session #1, DEA would return the favor in session #2. DEA would beat Amherst in the finals to take the crown.

The loss to DEA in the finals, seemed to drive a spike into the Amherst team, as they would not return to compete in the 2004-05 season. Instead, DEA found a new rival, Milano's. After finishing the regular season in the 4th seeded position, DEA would beat Applebee's, 5-0 in the quarter finals. DEA would beat the Rolling Thunder, 3-1 in the semi finals. DEA would take on Milano's, who beat DEA in regular season, in the finals. DEA would put on a "Patriot Like" defensive performance to shut Milano's out 2-0 to take their their 3rd Championship at Bow.

DEA is now officially a Dynasty. Winning their franchise record 3rd straight indoor division 1 crown, DEA is now in a class of their own. The second session playoffs of the 2004-05 season was all DEA. DEA took care of the SV Rovers in the first round 4-1. The SAPS gave DEA some trouble in round 2. The crowd cheered as DEA went down a goal. However, with 2 minutes to play DEA tied the score and with 20 seconds to play DEA would knock in the winner. This set up a DEA vs Milanos final again. The crowd waited around for this one in the hopes that the DEA machine would be derailed. They all would go home before the half as DEA went up 3-0 in the first 10 minutes of the match. Milanos turned over and died and DEA went on to a 6-0 victory and another indoor Crown.
