A little more about the club:
The 1st XI is working towards our goal of competing in BUCS Premier North Division, the highest league in university football.
Beyond life on the pitch, the club gets together for our weekly social (Circle) on Wednesday, reflecting on match performances, celebrating wins, or forgetting about defeats. The club has a great history of togetherness and a bond throughout our age groups.
The club also makes significant contributions to charity, holding numerous fundraisers throughout the year that have helped to raise thousands of pounds for worthy causes. Recent events include raising over £5000 through a London to Paris cycle, 24-hour cycle and Movember, as well as raising £4,500 with our 42-mile ultramarathon from Oldham to Liverpool. More recently we have raised over £1000 for Papyrus and over £1000 for a charity called Akwaaba. This charity focuses on giving children in Ghana better access to organised sport and education which are two things pivotal to the life we live.
Updates about events such as trials will be posted on our social media so make sure to follow us on Instagram and Facebook.
