New Team in Town

Camberwell Lacrosse has a new first.

A total new team comprised of fathers of junior club members has turned out to play in the Indoor “Mill” competition on Monday nights.  Seems like Brendan Lewis could no longer bear to watch his son Mason enjoying lacrosse without giving it a go himself.  What better way than to marshal together his own team of dads.
