England Seniors secure World Championships place

During October the England Squad travelled to Kolin, Czech Republic for the IKF World Championship Qualifiers. This competition was to secure a spot in the World Korfball Championships in Taipei next summer, and was the first of two qualifying events.

The opening game was against Serbia which England won 29-3 with Neala Brennan scoring 8 goals for England. The following fixtures against Ireland and Greece concluded 27-4 and 27-5 respectively in England’s favour, and were followed by a win against Slovakia.

In the final game England took on Poland. With a final score of 17-12 the England side maintained their 100% record to take first place in the competition and confirm their qualification for the World Korfball Championships 2023 in Taipei. A huge congratulations to Blake Palfreyman who was also the tournament’s top male scorer.

Well done to all the players, coaches and staff and we look forward to the World Korfball Championships in 2023.
