SEMLA Roundup 26/1/2016

  It was a typically frenetic set of fixtures in the SEMLA Premiership this weekend with arguably the key 3 league challengers battling to carve out a stranglehold in the division as well as a mid-table clash between two teams fighting to climb away from their rivals with East Grinstead visiting Hitchin. Last year’s league champions Spencer were at their Earlsfield home in South London where they faced premiership strugglers Bristol Bombers. Whilst their comparative league statures may give the impression the result would be a foregone conclusion, Bristol are renowned as producing combative performances and on their day can be a tough team to tackle, something Spencer were acutely aware of and keen to avoid at all costs. The hosts set about the fixture in typically dominating fashion and, with one eye on next week’s Clash of The Titans against fellow league hopefuls Hampstead, ensured they got their shooting[…]

English Club Lacrosse Roundup 7/12/2015

Despite much of the UK being struck by Storm Desmond bringing strong gales and even floods in some areas, a number of huge games were played in both the North and the South this weekend affecting the top and bottom teams in the leagues. In the Northern Premiership, Heaton Mersey and LTP student/Rutgers alumni Kevin Albert returned to action and to winning ways, dispatching Wilmslow at their home ground with a 11-3 victory to take them to 5th-place and equal on points with Timperley.

Northeast Craziness

Hey everyone, a lot has been going on up here in Newcastle since returning victoriously from the Easter 8’s down in Manchester.  Have to thank the LTP and Manchester crew again for hosting me down for the weekend it was an absolute blast.  Upon returning to the Toon, the lax season has had a few wrap up events for two teams up here.  The Newcastle Knights had their end of season awards and race night.  The Newcastle University players cleaned up on the awards raking in four of the awards. I was lucky enough to be awarded the Men’s Player of the Year and Best Single Game Performance for the team.  So the LTP boys are doing quite well this year taking home two MVP awards for their respected clubs (well done Mike).  After finishing up the Knights year, I helped to arrange the first ever Alumni Charity Tournament up[…]
