Cheshire Seeks Player Nominations for Referees Trophy

Nominations are requested for Senior players aged 18 and over to join the Cheshire County squad for the above game. In line with the new role of the Regional Associations agreed by the EL Board where the priority is the development of the sport and our players we particularly wish to be notified of players who aspire to playing at an elite level, but are not currently members of a National field lacrosse squad or player pool. This is largely because of the already heavy training commitment they are already engaged in and we have no wish to disrupt the National Squad programme.

We also urgently would like to hear from any experienced coaching staff who wish to be part of our new role in identifying talented players and developing the skills of potential elite athletes.

The eligibility requirement to play for Cheshire is to be a member of a recognised Cheshire County Club (Wilmslow, Cheadle, Cheadle Hulme, Norbury, Poynton, Mellor, Stockport, Chester University) or to have been resident of normally resident for two years within the Cheshire or Greater Manchester (South of the Mersey) area) though they may be playing for another club outside this area (However preferably not a Lancashire club)

Please forward nominations to John Sharples at or via the North West Association Facebook page as soon as possible with name, club, playing position, and email contact details. Players selected will be asked to pay a maximum of £20 towards the cost of their playing shirt which they will keep as a memento of their selection.

Any queries please contact John Sharples at the above email address or call 07985 408785. Referee’s Trophy (18th October).
