Huge congratulations to Iain Dunlop, Johny Shaw, Josh Gray and ex-pupil Kevin Archer who have made the 2012 Scotland Junior Squad after 8 hours of lacrosse and 2 hours of fitness testing last weekend. These players will be competing in the British National Championships in Manchester come March. Depending on performance and fitness these players may make the cut to play in the World Championships which will be held in Finland in the summer.
An honourable mention goes out to Matthew Hill who, as well as being selected for the Junior Squad fixtures above, has also been shortlisted for the Men’s Senior Squad who will be competing in the Senior European Championships in Amsterdam in July.
We are looking for the next generation of Scotland players! Currently Mearns Castle High School are the only secondary in Scotland who can offer you this opportunity and as a result many of the boys who started only last year are in the Scotland training squad.
Some of these boys will even be playing in the 2012 World Championships in Finland this summer.
The opportunity is there for you too… Training is on Wednesdays after school from 2.45 – 4.30 but we only have enough kit for a certain number of players so respond quickly – first come first served. We begin on 25th January.
Come and support your teacher and fellow pupils play ‘the fastest game on 2 feet’!
