New season about to begin for Hull Lacrosse Club
HULL Lacrosse Club are back in action this Saturday as the new North of England Men’s Lacrosse Association (NEMLA) Premier 3 season begins.
The campaign begins with City of Stoke visiting Inglemire Lane followed by trips to face Liverpool and Nottingham.
There will be the added spice of a nearby rival this year too following Lincoln’s entry into the division. Though Hull have played against them in a number of friendlies, this will be the first time they have faced each other competitively.
James Spence, who was Players' Player of the Year 2010-11, has returned to the club and joins the committee as Club Secretary. After a solid campaign in 2011-12, he has high hopes for Hull in the season ahead, both on and off the field.

He said: “In terms of on-pitch, we aim to replicate our strong performance from last season and ultimately challenge for promotion to the Premier 2 Division.
“Off-pitch, we are aiming to increase our number of local members and try to raise the profile of lacrosse within Hull and the East Riding.”
Hull will start the season with a selection of new players. Malcolm Kent has joined from Stirling University, Danny Eckersall from Leeds LC and James Agar arrives having spent the past year coaching York University.
In addition to experienced lacrosse players, the team is also welcoming some new starters who will be picking up the stick for the first time this season.
However, the club also hopes to recruit more new players from the local area and James assures those unfamiliar the sport will not be disappointed. He said: “Lacrosse is a really fast paced game and offers something for everyone.
“It is possible for people of all sizes and athletic abilities to become very effective at the game. It features fast shooting, big hitting and is as fun to watch as it is to play.”
Face-off for Saturday’s game is at 2pm on the University of Hull West Campus pitches and it is free to spectate.
