What a great weekend, I love the Flags. Three good senior games, plus the South of England Men’s Lacrosse association (SEMLA) ran the Harrow cup at the same time, the Harrow cup is for U17, U14 and U12 teams in the South. Basically lots of Lacrosse players of all ages in one place, Reading Lacrosse club. Reading is pretty central to most of the cubs in the South, so is often used for tournament and the like. Plus it’s a great venue, good fields and good facilities.
Spencer LC a team from inner London won two of the senior trophies, Minor and Senior Flags, whilst Cardiff Harlequins repeated last year’s victory over my team Bath.
Bath LC joined with Portsmouth Pythons to form a team for the U17, but didn’t do too well, although the kids enjoyed themselves. So much so that we split the squad and they played for another 35 minutes after the tournament was over, well worth driving the mini bus for.
On Sunday all the American Local development officers met up for the end of season wash up, free lunch on me.
Development wise things are really starting to bubble, looking towards September, who wants a coach, which clubs will be expanding, new clubs, etc etc. All this means a lot of miles on the motorway by the Development team, I’m clocking over a 1000 miles this month. For the connoisseurs, the coffee at Michel Wood Service Station is pretty much exactly the same as at Reading, but Reading has Ben and Gerry’s ice cream, I think I’m addicted to Cherry Garcia!
