Lacrosse the Pond


English Club Roundup 11/01/16

Following the Christmas break, the majority of English club teams returned back to training in the early new year in preparation for the stretch of fixtures which will form the final standings for the English leagues in both the North (NEMLA) and the South (SEMLA) as well as including the cup fixtures which will give us the teams who will feature in our Flags Final festivals in April and May. Unfortunately, the perils of playing lacrosse in the winter were present again this weekend where a number of top flight matches had to be postponed due to inclement weather conditions and waterlogged pitches. Whilst this is frustrating for all of the teams fighting it out for honours and survival, it now means that the fans get to enjoy competitive matches every weekend from now until the end of the season, with some clubs having to play two games over the[…]

English Club Lacrosse Update 30/11/15

  This weekend saw a number of fixtures ravaged by inclemental weather thanks to a huge storm taking over much of England – one of the pitfalls with playing lax as a Winter sport! In the Northern Premiership, the only game to survive the weather was to be found in Sale, Manchester, where Brooklands hosted league leaders Stockport.

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[…]
