Flags: Milton Keynes 7 – 12 Welwyn 2’s

A gorgeous day for the first competitive game of lacrosse at Stantonbury Fields.

The first competitive game for Milton Keynes saw the visit of Welwyn’s second team, from the division above, to play in the Flags Round 1 (cup).

Whilst Welwyn came out winners, thanks mainly to their strong 1st quarter, the day was a roaring success for MK. The astro field at Stantonbury is ideal for lacrosse and the staff from Buskers put on some good post-game food in the Stantonbury bar.

The 15-man MK squad included 3 playing their first every game (Ben, Jonny and Ollie) and 5 players who’ve only played one previous full-field game, the friendly vs Uni of Chester (Aaron, Sam, Simon, Brett and Kyle). Everyone got plenty of game time and we gave Welwyn a good test. There’s not much to work on now in training to turn this opening performance into future victories.
