Passing of a true gentle giant

by Tony

It is with great sadness we have to inform all our players, members, supporters and all lacrosse supporters of the passing of Zachary Darnell #88.

Such a young heart to be taken so soon, having only been with WLC for this season whilst studying at MMU, Zach has made a massive impact on so many and has left an even bigger hole in our hearts. A gentle giant off the grass but a leader on the pitch, Zach will be missed in so many ways.

Our thoughts are with his family back home in the USA.

#88 keep playing on

WHAT a Season 2018/19

by Tony

With our AGM approaching to put a close to our 2018/19 season it is a time for reflection.

With our U12’s players joining in a mixed CheadleHulme/Wacs/Norbury team they have had the best of seasons, being able to merge teams from clubs without issues is simply brilliant and something which will happen again this coming 2019//20 season until our own U12s programme is producing enough players to field a full team. The team lost out in the cup final at NEMLA flags weekend but a fabulous season had by all.

Again with our U16s we merged with CheadleHulme under coach Chris Peacock and had a fabulous season only loosing a few games and winning the season outright (unofficial league).
The team lost out in the semi-finals of the NELMA cup at but won the JABarber Cup at the Etihad Stadium on super sunday.

U19s were again a mixed team mainly WIlmslow and CheadleHulme with Tom Teal being a season long loan (goalkeeper) from Rochdale LC.
The lads played some great stuff being coached by Frazer, Pazza and Matt with them narrowly loosing out by 1 goal to Sheffield in the plate final. We will be merging a team for the 2019/20 season again.

Our Senior A team had a fabulous season by winning outright the Premier Division 2 league, some great games throughout the season with our Captain Sam Burgess and Pete Dobson taking us all the way to the finals at NEMLA Flags weekend but falling short on the day and loosing out to Leeds. Our Senior A team not to be outdone worked there socks off and came out winners of North Division 2 league with only 2 points in it. Again by beating Sheffield in extra time in the semi-final they also lost in the final at NEMLA Flags weekend to Rochdale.

Overall a fabulous season with 2 league trophies, the aggregate trophy, the U16s JABarber Cup and in September as a start to our season our senior travelling team won for the third time in succession the Rhino Cup held in Belgium, not only did we win a great trophy but we also took home a massive super trophy for 3 wins in a row. We will be looking to win a fourth year this September 2019.
