If desperate, try to find someone already going from US who claims British ancestry.

:!:  Great idea, surely we could get some canadians to play for us?  I had a few who were happy to offer their services?  Boris, whats the deal with all that?  

One of them prolly won't make the canadian team, so could he play for us?

I'm so there next year.
Alas this year the degree and not being 21 are getting in the way.

Thats a shame Joe.  

Last year I had just turned 21 and Sarah was only 20 and I think we got id'd once the whole trip, I don't think they are as strict as other parts of America.

Can't let it mess up the degree though!

Since Canada has about a dozen males going, I'll loyally offer my services to our ex-colonial owners if I don't make the team. I'm sure it'll be fine by the rules :D

I'm awesome at passing back to my goalie, scoring on myself, and giving it to the opponent's 3-rod. It really fu*ks with their mental game.

To play for the UK someone either needs to be a UK citizen, have been born in the UK, or have been continuously resident here for 5x years.

A very sad day realising that the Cotty Cup will have to be suspended for a year...
