BBC’s Mike Bushell Faces Team England

BBC Breakfast’s Mike Bushell Faces Team England

Mike Bushell was keen to give Lacrosse another try, having met Team England Women a few years ago he wanted to know what the Men’s sport was like. Team England depart for the 2014 World Lacrosse Championships in Denver in a few weeks, so Mike met the lads in prime condition. Keen to get involved Mike spent some time in goal, shooting and running 1v1 attacks.  He asked Team England to demonstrate the contact area, as he knew this was a key difference from the women’s sport. Kyle Standiford, Team England’s defence-man did not let him down. Mike hit the deck a few times.

Coach Wallace, Goalkeeper Nick Anderton and Kyle Standiford spoke to Mike about the sport, World Championships and growth of Lacrosse in the UK. Mike will use the footage to populate his Breakfast show slot early next month. An exact date will be released shortly.

Team England Players: Nick Anderton, Sam Patterson, Kyle Standiford, Mike Armstrong, Bill Fisher and Coach Alistair Wallace
