Newcastle played their final home match of the season against Leeds on what seemed to be one of the most windiest days of 2015, Saturday 7th March.
On Saturday 10th January the Newcastle Women's lacrosse team played their first game of 2015 against Stockport team, Mellor.
On Saturday 15th November the Newcastle women's team travelled to Manchester to face Brooklands in their second away match of the season.
A couple of weeks ago, the following phrase appeared in the Rochdale match report:
“…so close yet so far from marking what would have been the best quality win in club history was devastating.”
Well…I’m no longer devastated.
After a few weeks of relative silence, the hamsters in the nutlax.com analysis booth have got out of their wheels and back to their computers – here’s their first instalment of your NEMLA Premier 2 roundup for this season.
Newcastle upon Tyne Lacrosse Club hosted European Champions, Oxton, playing 10 a side on Saturday 18th October.
Following a strong, but ultimately pointless, start to the league season at Rochdale the previous week, the Knights welcomed fellow promotioneers Cheadle Hulme to Longbenton. The result was not one that anyone could have predicted….
The Knights started their season with a trip to Rochdale, last season's 5th place finishers in Prem 2. Their last trip to Bridgeford Rd in the 12/13 season saw them on the wrong end of a convincing 10-1 scoreline.
On Saturday, the 4th of October the Newcastle Knights women's lacrosse team played their first league match of the season against Mellor.
It was a good start to the season with a new team member, Jessica Waugh playing her first match for the team. She did a fantastic job showing the skills that she's developed through the summer with the teams weekly training sessions.
The team were also joined by Molly Spencer, a trained goal keeper from Stockport. They are hoping that Molly will be able to join them for the rest of the season as Natalie Greening, the previous goal keeper left the team to work aboard, leaving the them needing the knowledge and skills that Molly can provide.
The Newcastle team were defeated but put up a good fight with the umpire commenting on how well the defence had played. Laura Towers and Molly Spencer were nominated joint man of the match.
Final Score Knights 0 - 17 Mellor
