A five-year hiatus from league lacrosse may have ended in defeat but simply playing the match was a huge step forward for Welwyn Warriors' women.

The club, who train and play across Welwyn Hatfield, were at Bishop's Hatfield School for the South of England League clash with south London-based Spencer, a match which ended in an 11-2 defeat.

Skipper Sam Wisbey was still delighted though.

She said: "It's obviously disappointing to lose but it's a great achievement to see the side back in a league and playing competitive lacrosse.

"The team battled hard throughout the whole game and will improve as the season goes on and we play more games together."

Player of the match for Welwyn was Issy Clegg who scored one goal with a great individual effort.

One day earlier the men opened their East of England Division One season with a 10-5 reverse to Hitchin at Hertfordshire Sports Village.
