Under 13s shine at county trials

Packwood’s Under 13 lacrosse players took the Shropshire county trials by storm again this year. The selectors were impressed with the girls’ skills, work rate and sheer grit and picked no fewer than nine of them to join the county squad.

Packwood lacrosse coach, Mr Charles, commented, “The girls had a great day at the trials. While many were quietly, but deservedly, confident of selection, there were others who certainly surpassed their own expectations.

“I was very pleased with the way they played, as I have been all term. The girls are a very coachable team who listen to advice and respond well; this, coupled with their love of the game and outstanding levels of fitness, has been key to their success. Their reward has come in a fantastically successful season which saw them undefeated in regular fixtures, now capped off by so many of them winning places in the county squad. Well done girls!”
