The 5th event of the season took place at Poynton Lacrosse Club on Sunday 8th March, after a morning of rain the spirits of the children weren’t dampened at all and just as the event began the rain stopped. Conditions underfoot were a bit muddy in places but the children just got on with it and played with great enthusiasm and sportsmanship throughout the afternoon.
16 teams from 7 different clubs took part, these events run with 5 or 6 a side, short matches, on small pitches with the emphasis very much on enjoyment and developing the fundamental skills of the game. Each team played 5 matches against other teams in their own age group and all left very happy and some very muddy!
The next U10/U8 Beginners Event will be at Mellor Lacrosse Club on 17th May, for more information about this programme please contact Doug Martin from English Lacrosse on firstname.lastname@example.org
