Lacrosse in the UK is beginning to reap the rewards for the endless amounts of effort and planning in its INTOLacrosse scheme.

The English Lacrosse Association’s new coaching regime all has been hitting Universities and Schools since last summer and has overseen the rise of many new teams as a result.

Bournemouth and Falmouth are the two newest teams in the South West, with English Lacrosse Development Officer, Will Finlayson, at the forefront of their success. The Bath Lacrosse player travels to the respective Universities on a weekly basis to carry out basic Lacrosse skills sessions, along with activities to encourage more and more players to take up the sport.

Cirencester 18 – 5 Bournemouth University Girls

Bournemouth University’s new squad of girls continue to impress despite losing again to a very experienced Cirencester team, in a game which was once again dominated by adverse weather conditions. 

The South Coast girls have had to get used to awful conditions in the last couple of games, first playing on a bog-like pitch in Plymouth and  now seeing 30-mph winds literally taking the ball out of their sticks, making it hard for any sort of skill to shine through.

Last time out Plymouth scraped a win as Bournemouth adjusted to the conditions quicker, however, Cirencester, with their bank of experienced international players, had seen it all before and ended up running away with this game despite a spirited display from the more inexperienced Bournemouth.
