2012 Scotland U19 Lacrosse Blog From Turku, Finland

The schedule became clear to us today. Tomorrow we must beat the Dutch for the chance to play the Welsh once more, if we win both of these games we get 9th place. If we lose to the Dutch we play the Koreans, a fight for 11th place. This made our goal very clear – we must beat a team we have beaten to play a team who have beaten us, making both games perhaps harder mentally thanks to the history. Read More…

2012 Scotland U19 Lacrosse Blog From Turku, Finland



Today, was all about lifting team morale after yesterday’s loss against the Welsh. With the team deflated and most of our minds clearly in the wrong place, we were taken out for an unconventional training session. Rather than running drills, we ran six-on-six for 1 or 2 hours, hacking pieces out of each other and generally letting some steam off – none of us were ready to think about walk-throughs. The weather helped, with the sun hot enough to allow just pinnies. We reminded ourselves that although we could now only finish 9th, if we won our next game we could face the Welsh again, motivation enough to get everyone’s head back where it should be. I personally found ice cream, Subway, and muffins helped me get over the loss. Read More…

Despite having played a game the day before, it was another early start to get more walk throughs in before grabbing lunch. Having ate stacks of bread and meat sauce we lounged outside waiting for training to start. Korea v Holland had begun so we did our best to support the Koreans – Holland being our opponent for tomorrow. It was a worthwhile watch, checking out both their weaker and stronger players to shape our training later that day. Read More…

Day 4: Game day. Early start to get in the right food before taping sticks, packing the white jerseys and heading down to the hotel foyer to meet for the walk over. Flag bearer Rory Halsey led us from the hotel to the changing rooms where the Germany Wales game was finishing up. After a team talk we stepped out to warm up, again with Rory leading us with the saltire. After a quick run through of drills it was time to sing the national anthem. Read More…
