Fircroft sponsor Wales U19 Lacrosse Team



Fircroft are proud sponsors of the Wales U19 Women's Lacrosse Team who recently competed in the 2019 World Championship Tournament in Peterborough, Canada. Midfield attack player Millie Hurt presented Fircroft founder John Johnson with a ceremonial team shirt, signed by the whole squad. 

Fircroft founder John Johnson was presented with a ceremonial signed shirt for the U19 Wales Women's Lacrosse team, which Fircroft sponsors

Accompanying Millie to Fircroft headquarters was her grandfather Brian Hurt, a former senior employee of the company. 

Wales reached 7th place in the tournament, which was won by the United States. The U19 Women's Lacrosse World Championships are held every 4 years with 22 national teams competing.

Millie, who now plans to attend university in the USA on a lacrosse scholarship, described the team's final match against Germany:

“The final match was an intense one as we finished the game 8-8 and it went to golden goal. This is where you continue playing until one team scores a goal and wins. In the extra time Germany got a free position meaning they could have a free shot at goal but our keeper saved it. Then we got the ball back and scored and won 9-8. I felt so determined that we were going to win and I was ecstatic when we scored.

“I haven’t competed in a world championship before so it was an amazing experience for me.”

The team will next compete in April against England, Scotland and Ireland in the U19 Home Internationals.
