England U19 Volleyball Debut

Posted on: November 23rd 2017

Sam Marsh in Year 13 spent the whole Half Term week in Kettering, (the home of Volleyball England), training and preparing for a big International Competition representing England in the U19 NEVZA 2017 playing against Iceland, The Faroe Islands, Denmark, Sweden and Norway over the Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

England beat Iceland in their first match but lost to Denmark in the second match on Friday.  Then the Saturday saw then win against The Faroe Islands and lose to Sweden.  This put them in a position where they were playing for 3rdor 4th place in the competition and they successfully beat Norway giving them a Bronze Medal on the Sunday.

Sam absolutely loved being a part of this and felt happy to represent his country for a second time at International Level – and he even managed to fit in some Sixth Form work along the way!
