Elite recognition in the Netherlands!

During the Easter holidays Newark Academy’s Sam and Brandon, from Year 11, visited Zupthen, Netherlands to help referee the Steve Billinghurst Friendship Club. This is an elite level boys football tournament, in association with the Nottingham Forest Development Centre in Grantham. Whilst on their trip, they both refereed tournament games for some of Europe’s prominent football clubs such as; Barcelona, Nottingham Forest, Ipswich Town, Vitesse and FC Utrecht.

Sam and Brandon thoroughly enjoyed their experience at the tournament and have been great ambassadors for both the Nottingham Forest Development Centre and Newark Academy. We are also pleased to say that due to the amazing job that they both did during their time in Zupthen, they have been invited back again next year to help referee the tournament.

Well done!
