Brilliant news for Lasswade’s young athletes. Won all three sections from Saturday, won all three matches over the series. Huge well done to athletes, parents, coaches and officials . Special thanks to Craig Morton in his first season as Team Manager.
Looking forward to the Presidents select match and next season in Division 1.
A Big Big week for Lasswade with the final FVL match of the season on Saturday. Sitting top of Div 2 and pushing for promotion.
Sunday’s match is possibly even bigger. CSSAL down at Nithsdale and again with the clash of dates with an Upper YDL we need all athletes to try and make themselves available.
With one of our normal selectors (Linda) away we have a mix of Craig for the younger athletes and Margaret and David Mc for the older groups.
If approached please help. If not then please come forward to Craig , Margaret or Dave there is probably an event for you.
“You find out a lot about yourself through athletics. If you’re cut out to be a winner or a failure or a quitter, athletics will bring it out of you”
We may not all be winners but at Lasswade AC we are no failures and no quitters !!!!! Time to step forward …….
Could all athletes and parents of athletes who had been listed for the lower YDL match this weekend please check their emails including spam and respond to team manager Linda Smith as soon as possible. Many thanks
Team Manager Linda Smith is still looking for a number of replies from athletes for this coming Sunday’s YDL please respond ASAP
Also so far a poor response from u13 athletes so if you are or know the athletes or parents please prompt them to respond to Linda soonest.
It is important to get as strong a squad out to this one as possible
