The first of two England National Lacrosse Team open trials were held this morning at the University of Manchester as torrential rain and hail failed to stop the hard hitting hopefuls.

The trials are being held in order to select a 40 man squad, which will eventually be whittled down to 23, plus 3-4 reserve players by mid-April. The players were tested on stick skills, position specific skills and took part in half-field attack v defence plays, before finishing with mini-games, where the three teams each played each other to show off what they’ve got.

Overall, organisers and spectators alike praised the quality of play considering the conditions, before highlighting the great athleticism and promise on show for English Lacrosse.

The second of the trials is to be held on December 11 at Walcountian Blues Lacrosse Club, Surrey. Players are reminded that the trials cost £30.00 and you must have the valid citizenship (as seen on the English Lacrosse website) to take part.
