For the first time in history, Goalball UK has taken both a male and a female talent team away to represent Great Britain at an international tournament – and these teams consisted of NCW students!

The recent international tournament was held in Urk, in the Netherlands, and hosted a number of international and club teams from around Europe including Amsterdam and Ukraine.

Charlotte, Chelsea and Kali (former student) were amongst the players selected for the Women’s Squad, and Stuart and Naqib (former student) for the Men’s!

Upon being picked for the team, Chelsea delighted: “It was a big achievement for me to get picked to play for Great Britain, it was a great experience – I was also the youngest player in the women’s team”

Both teams played brilliantly, with many scoring their first international goals, defending their first international penalty and for some even taking part in their first Great Britain hug!

We are very proud of both squads who represented both Great Britain and NCW with pride, passion and determination. A special shout out goes to the men’s, who came third overall after beating Greece in the third/fourth playoff. Great effort!

Congratulations to everyone!
