News Article - British National Championship - Apr 26, 2010
The Wales Senior and Wales Development squads will both compete at the British National Championship on the 1st and 2nd May at Wilmslow Lacrosse Club in Cheshire. The Wales squads will battle it out with Cheshire, Lancashire, Scotland, South, South Unis, South Development, North Unis, Yorkshire, England Masters and England Grand Masters for the Nick Kehoe Trophy.
Wales have high hopes for success in this years tournament and are using it as part of their World Championships preparation. Wales have won the tournament once before and hope to regain the trophey.
July 2010 will see the Welsh National Men’s team compete among 30 of the World’s top teams in Manchester, England. Wales had over 120 player trial for the squad in the last 20 months, the squad has recently been cut to 26 players of which only 23 will play in the World Games.
President and team Manager Gordon Shumack is delighted with the progress Wales have made in recent years, as since the Europeans in Glasgow (1999) Gordon and wife Chris have endeavoured to build Wales into a winning team. It has often been tough but the appointment of Jason Perrin as head Coach in 2008 has brought an excellent contribution to what Wales are seeking to achieve. He is ably assisted by the coaching staff and physio.
“It’s unbelievable” says Head Coach Jason Perrin, “Lacrosse in Wales is still growing and the talent pool has been bigger than ever. Since the 2008 European Championships the structured and determined approach adopted, is now beginning to show results. Wales are better prepared for this tournament then we have been in the past and the results this summer will prove that to the rest of the World”
Only 23 players will be suited up during the World Games and Coach Perrin has some tough choices ahead of him. Perrin said “We have a depth in the squad that Wales has never had, making the final cut is not something I look forward to doing but it must be done. I have told the players that it is not just about being in the 23 but making the starting 10. Those who push themselves beyond what they thought were their limits will prove worthy of wearing the Wales jersey. I would also like to thank the players for their professionalism and the sacrifices they have made”
