Norfolk deliver an outstanding National Youth Day

The 2017 edition of National Youth Day took place on Sunday, 9th July in Norwich.

England Korfball’s Frank Sieber said: “A great milestone this year, with National Youth Day founder Peter Allan in attendance along with David Bond and Lol More, 20+ years service to National Youth Day was celebrated at the presentation, recognising their outstanding contribution to youth Korfball.

Norfolk Korfball’s chairman Joe Skeet said: “It was an absolute pleasure to host National Youth Day this year. It was fantastic to see so many young and talented children, from across the country, enjoying the sport.

“Special thanks and recognition must also go to all the Norfolk Korfball volunteers who came out in force and gave up their time to ensure the event ran smoothly.

“Thanks also to the referees that travelled from further afield to assist with the event.

“Well done to all the teams that took part and thanks to everyone that attended, we hope you all enjoyed yourselves in Norwich”
