On Friday 6th July, the annual match between Stopfordians Lacrosse Club and the Rebels took place.
The Rebels team is made up of Old Stopfordians not currently playing for the club, most of whom are at university or living out of the area. A cool, damp evening saw an excellent turnout of over two dozen players.
Stopfordians won the game, but the Rebels played some good lacrosse, especially bearing in mind that these are players who have rarely, if ever, played together on the same team.
The new season begins in late September and the spirit again looks good, although numbers would benefit from the addition of any of our ‘rebels’ who may now be available to play for the club.
Phil Hall is the new Stopfordians lacrosse captain and he would be delighted to welcome any new players into the club.
