EHF delegate, Alan Grima is presently on assignment during the Women’s Under 19 European Championship which is being held in the Netherlands. The tournament that started on Thursday 4th August and is hosted in five different cities: Leek, Arnhem, Almelo, Maastricht and Rotterdam has now reached the main round. Alan Grima has so far been appointed as match supervisor in four Group D matches of the preliminary round, namely Germany – Serbia (21-16); Serbia – France (33-31); France – Germany (26-13) and Sweden – Serbia (26-27).

Matches have up to now, not only produced highly entertaining and top level handball but also many surprising results. Norway, Hungary and Russia, the first three teams in the last Championship were the victims of the preliminary round and definitely cannot place in the top eight teams this time around.

Alan Grima will be in Maastricht for the main round Group 2 matches which include Croatia, Denmark, Sweden and Serbia. The tournament will come to an end next Sunday with the final match being played at the Topsportcentrum in Rotterdam.
