In the BUCS Lacrosse cup competition Nottingham 1sts made it to the Quarter finals but was unlucky to be drawn against high flying Durham away from home, losing 14-1.
Trent was illegible for the competition.

With both teams losing games away from home, it will be interesting to see how Uni fare playing at Trent’s Clifton Campus, albeit being in the higher standing league.
