THE MK Roos Korfball Club returned from an excellent trip to the home of the sport with a trophy, and also an award for the top scorer.

The team competed in the annual Velocitas International Tournament in Leiderdorp, Holland and upset the odds to win five matches out of five on their way to victory.

Their success is the perfect pre-season boost for the city’s biggest korfball club who will hope to win silverware in the South Midlands League to add to their thrilling South Midlands Cup final victory in May.

New Roos signing Chelsie Browne was the star of the tournament, top scoring with 10 goals, but in the end all squad members got on the scoresheet.

The England youth international and Shenley Brook End School student made such an impression that the host club have made an approach to sign her, and are proposing a year of study at nearby Leiden University for next season.

Roos are looking for more players to compete in their top sides and for their third team and recreational sides. All men and women aged 16 and over are welcome. Contact Darren on 07949 411502 for more information or visit
