Last Saturday 27th September, the Lightning travelled down the A1 for a morning (10:00am) scrimmage with University team the Durham Saints at their home ground of Maiden Castle.
This was an excellent opportunity for the team to continue to develop thanks to the Saints who provided a similar experience for the club last November, allowing the team to get ready for upcoming games this October and November.
The Saints provided a very physical and demanding test for the Lightning but it was one they thoroughly enjoyed. The Saints begin preparations now for their upcoming season and we wish them luck for the forthcoming year.
Northumberland Lightnings next step is a game against Northumbria Mustangs (Uni) in 3 weeks….
