England won its last game in the tournament and has therefore won all its matches in the EURO 2003, undermining its position as no. 1 lacrosse nation in Europe. Although both German national teams tried hard, they lost their games for 3rd and 5th place. Nevertheless everyone was impressed by the strong performance of the upcoming lacrosse nation. Five Players were selected as All-European players. Of course all German lacrosse players are already looking forward to the next European Cup 2004 in Prague.

The officials were:

Ken Galluccio - Canada
Jim Price - Canada
Andreas Rossband - Germany
Alexander Daskalow - Germany

7 new officials from the European newcomers were trained at the event as well! The Event was made possible by a grant from the ILF and was much appreciated. Frank Lawrence of Canada donated referee shirts to the new nations and to Peter Mundy and the ELF donated their whistles and flags.

Austria was a wonderful host and the city of Salzburg is enchanting as you can see in some of the pictures. Arthur and Claudia ran the event and did a great job!
