It is with great sadness that we recognise the passing of Ann Hutchings. She was a hugely respected figure in women's lacrosse both domestically and internationally known to many within the game in Wales.
The ELA and FIL websites make very fitting tributes that can be reached by clicking on the logos below. I can only add that "Hutch" was an integral part of my lacrosse life over the last 24 years - from the time that she coached me at Combined Universities through to the support she always showed when I was coaching teams. I will never forget her cheery greetings at the 2007 U19 World Championships in Canada.
Funeral Arrangements: Monday 27 October, 1pm at St Lawrence's Church, Hungerford, West Berkshire.
Please contact me for further details.
