Mersey 15: Scotland 4 was the final score of the 'seniors' I believe.

The way it had been explained to me was that the two squads were not defined senior or junior squads but instead were designed to allow juniors the experience of playing with seniors in order to benefit their playing ability. Though judging by 15-0 it didn't go so well :/

The 15-0 result was to the Knights U19s NOT Mersey u19s

The Knights are the tour side that went to USA this summer where they attended a Lax Camp and then played in a tournament together.

They are more like an All Star team than a club side, and are in mid season form/fitness,

Scotland U19s looked like a pre-season game which it was.

the knights team is probaly all england u19 hopefulls.

the scotland sides had a big squad and played everyone if they had stayed to the core(better) players they would have performed better.
League restructure I told you so 10/3/2011(looking good on this one)
Prem division to two leagues will result in the prem division failing and being combined with Nemla 22/3/2012
the proposed restructure to 8 teams in each prem league will only last a couple of years until it has to be restructured again due to teams dropping out. 13/12/2012

Wacs seniors won 12-3.

Think the U19s won 13-2 or something around that mark

The Knights team is actually 17 and under with guest Josh Hurry being the only 18 year old.

We really enjoyed playing Scotland U19 and I respect what they are trying to do, sometimes you learn more about your players when you lose and this is the only way they will improve their own game and gel with each other. Everyone has to start somewhere.

Good luck to the team and coaching staff in their preperations for next years World Games.

One more point on the Knights team

They looked well drilled and organised and played some good team lacrosse, especially on defense where they were early to slide and recover, looking very comfortable and confident in trusting each other to do their job.

In attack it was a good combination of individual skills and team skills moving the ball well and players working off ball to make space and get open for feeds.

i.e. - They looked a well Coached TEAM

I don't know how much time Scotland U19s have had together but I would suggest they will be a lot better after this tour than before

It was a great experience for all involved and I think most of the players learned a heck of a lot last week. There performances steadily improved (not necessarily reflected in the score lines though) through the week and the systems started to take shape. The majority of the u-19 side hadn't picked up a stick this time last year so their learning curve has been pretty steep.

Playing against well respected teams, with the quality of player that they all possessed, is fundamental in developing junior lacrosse in Scotland, especially heading towards the worlds next summer. We'd had the trials the previous weekend and a one hour session on the Wednesday prior to the Knights game but mostly these players hadn't figured in a game since the BNCs. We've a lot of work to do but we're optimistic about the prospects.

I'd like to thank the Knights, Mersey, WACS, Timperly and Wilmslow for their hospitality, providing us with opposition and the spirit in which they played the game. It was a fun and educational tour. Cheers guys.

This didn't happen, although one or two of the younger senior players (22-23 year olds) dropped down to cover injuries. The squads trained together without any divisions between senior and u-19.

Fair play. Initially I thought the scores indicated a pounding but if anything the Juniors clearly did well to hold teams who've been playing for years, in many cases together for that time, to a comparatively low scoreline shows great promise for them running up to next Summer!

Great to see the U19s up and going north of the border.
