Veor Get Revenge
Veor got some revenge on the Lions after their early cup exit early september. In a bruising encounter the Lions nearly snatched a draw with a late penalty but were unable to come away with a point. The 2nds extended their unbeaten run to 4 games with a fine display against a big Falmouth 2nds side with the final score being 28-3 to the home side. Another week without conceding a try is something that will motivate the boys and coaching team Alex McKay, Marcus Hill and Philip Mutton to keep this winning run going.
Trevaskis Leaves Lions
Head coach Barry Trevaskis has parted company with the Lions with immediate effect. First team responsibilities will now be in the hands of assistant and former head coach Mark Goldsmith. The defeat at the weekend to Totnes would prove to be Barry's last game in charge. Liskeard Looe RFC wish to thank Barry for his time and efforts even though things did not work out. They would also like to than Mark Goldsmith for taking on the taking up the post on such short notice. On a brighter note the 2nds managed another victory against a strong Bude 2nds side 26-0. Another game without conceding a point has to be a huge bonus to a team that is growing in confidence.
Lions Beat Torrignton
The Lions recorded their first win of the league season on saturday when they beat Torrington away with a far from full strength side. The seconds also continued their good form by beating Camelford 52-0 with a host of different try scorers.
Lions lose to Teignmouth
A far from convincing performance resulted in the first loss of the season to Teighmouth in the league on saturday. The result didn't tell the whole story as the lions had a try disallowed after some good play and the half time score was only 0-3.
Lions Through to Next Round of The Cup
With 3 first team debutantes and a new brand of rugby the lions found it hard at times to get over the try line. The low score however did not reflect the game as apart from a few silly penalties given away in the Liskeard half, Veor rarely threatened to break down a strong lions defence. The final pass was lacking on the day for the lions but is something that will come with a big effort on the training field.
Race Night @ The Railway
On Saturday 17th September there will be a race night in aid of both the rugby and football club. There will be 8 races on the night with 8 horses in each race. Horses are £5 each with the winners getting their money back. A brilliant night is always had by everyone that takes apart and its a great way to raise some money for the two clubs. More information available on their fb page.
Liskeard Defeat Rivals Bodmin
A squad of 25 took on Bodmin on saturday in a pre season warm up match. The game was split into 4 quarters with wholesale changes made throughout to give everyone a chance to prove what they can do. The Lions eventually ran out 21-0 victors.
A new season is upon us and a new coach in place. Liskeard Looe would like to welcome Barry Trevaskis as head coach for the forthcoming 2014/15 season and a thank you to Mark Goldsmith for his efforts last year. Mark will still be around but work commitments mean not quite so much as last season.
Training Starts Thursday 30th June 2015 up at the 1st team pitch
