The end of another season, wrapped up with the now traditional 6-a-side tournament organised by the Centurion Lacrosse Club played at the Croydon ground near Bromley.
Most teams from across the South were present plus two teams from Shaker High School, a US school on tour in the UK. You could spot them a mile off…matching bags, helmets, shoes, socks…matching everything!
The Spencer team was a mix of 1st and A team players; Colin Bryne,Alan Walker, Robert Gooch, Alex Lee, Jason Byrne, Mark Davis and Warren Fletcher.
After narrowly losing to Penarth 5-4 in the opener, we lost the plot a bit in the next two games. A combination of limited fitness and waiting for someone else to make it happen were the primary factors in our weak play. We pulled it round and stuffed Reading but then let ourselves down in the final match by losing 3-2 to the US kids, a game we should of won.
