NEMLA Club Roundup 18/01

With the winds of winter striking across the country, several of the scheduled English club games games were postponed this week due to frozen pitches. However, the heat of the Northern Premiership competition was enough to melt the snow away in the two arguably biggest games of the weekend, with Wilmslow hosting Rochdale in their fight for top-level survival and Poynton welcoming Heaton Mersey in a match which could go to some distance in deciding the final standings toward the top of the table. Following their disappointing loss against fellow Premiership strugglers Sheffield Steelers last week, Wilmslow came into this weekend desperately needing a win to ensure they didn’t slip to the bottom of the table. Rochdale, who hadn’t played a competitive game for over 5 weeks, were equally as eager to register a W having been unable to take full points from a match since their 2-win streak at[…]

BUCS Rundown 3/1/15

As ever, Wednesday in university in the UK means sports day, which ultimately means another game of lacrosse for our LTP students! This week we saw top of the table battles for supremacy as well as bottom of the league struggles for survival in another frantic week of university lacrosse. This week, in an ongoing battle to get away from the bottom place in the Men’s Premier North league, Rutgers alumni and 15/16 LTP Student Kevin Albert’s University of Manchester side faced Leeds Beckett at home in the fixture known as “The War of The Roses”.

English Club Lacrosse Roundup 21/11/15

This weekend saw a number of big matches in the Northern Premiership with all of the top four playing one another. League leaders Stockport maintained their impressive 100% win ratio by beating fourth-placed Heaton Mersey (and current LTP student Kevin Albert) 13-5 meanwhile LTP students Doug Homan & Jovan Miller (2G, 1A) helped Poynton beat Cheadle 8-7 to move into third-place with a 4-2 record so far having already played Cheadle both home and away and Stockport away.With Poynton playing Stockport on the final day of the season, this could well be a fixture which has a huge say in the outcome of this year’s title race and will certainly be one to watch out for. The only other game in the Northern Premiership in a weather-ravaged weekend was at Rochdale where the hosts lost 8-9 to their Lancashire rivals Brooklands with the winner coming in the last few seconds[…]
