Ireland lacrosse squad calls up St Ambrose pupil

ROB EDWARDS, a sixth former from St Ambrose college, the Christian Brothers’ foundation in Altrincham, Cheshire, has been called into the full Ireland lacrosse team. Rob comes from Timperley in Cheshire.

At only 17 years of age the muscular midfield playmaker is one of the youngest ever lacrosse stars to make the full Irish national side.

He is now looking forward to playing a pivotal role in both Ireland’s challenge for the Celtic Cup, which features Ireland, Wales, Scotland and France, and the world cup to be held next summer in Manchester.

Rob has been playing the game for seven years, and was first introduced to the sport at St Vincent’s primary school.

He said: “It demands speed strength, agility, vision and above all handto-eye coordination. It’s extremely fast-moving and exciting and I am lucky to be at the heart of England’s lacrosse fraternity, playing for one of the country’s top clubs.” Rob has to travel back and forth to University College Dublin for matches and special training camps, adding to the twice-weekly sessions he completes with Timperley.

After A-levels Rob hopes to join the RAF or study business.
