Three Bristol University alumni were named in the Team England Development squad for Lacrosse. Nick Acutt, Ed Shee and current Bristol University Lacrosse Coach, Pete Wilson.
Both Ed and Nick only started playing Lacrosse at the beginning of University a few years ago and all three had the privilege of being coached by Guy Oldring, Head Lacrosse Coach at Bristol University.
Guy Oldring said "I am exceptionally proud to see Nick Acutt, Ed Shee and Pete Wilson have all made the England Development Squad for the 2016 European championships. I had the pleasure of coaching all three of these individuals all the way through their University career. As both Ed and Nick started Lacrosse at Bristol University, it is a testament to what you can achieve if you are willing to put the hard work in, and take advantage of all the amazing support that Bristol University offers with regards to Men's Lacrosse. It has also been fantastic to see Pete's rise through England Universities, South England and captaining the Bristol City 1st team to now being placed in the full England camp. I wish all the guys the best of luck and hope to see them get their first full cap soon."
