Thirteen youngsters reunite for NCS Match Day
Thirteen graduates from last summer’s National Citizen Service programme joined us at Carrow Road on Saturday for the third annual NCS Match Day.
They spent the build up to kick off sharing their NCS experiences and brainstorming ideas, before watching Norwich City FC’s 3-2 EFL Championship victory against in-form Bristol City.
NCS Match Day was launched in 2017 to show how football and young people can unite communities and make a massive difference together, and is hosted by Premier League and Football League clubs nationwide.
The 13 who attended at Carrow Road were among almost 700 young people to graduate National Citizen Service with the Community Sports Foundation last summer. Over 4,000 young people from Norfolk completing the programme with CSF since its inception in 2011.
“Match Day is a fantastic opportunity to give something back to our graduates who want to stay involved in NCS,” said NCS Engagement Coordinator Alex Spindler. “It’s hugely gratifying to hear them speak so passionately about the programme, and with the majority being Norwich City fans, it’s great to be able to invite them to a game as a special thank you”.
If you know somebody aged 15-17 who would like to take part in National Citizen Service, there are still spaces available for this summer. To find out more, click here.
