We welcome everyone, regardless of ability
Whether you’ve been playing for years or are a total beginner, you’ll fit right in to one of our teams. All are accepted and we don’t turn anyone away.
We are a club of opportunity
Enhance your student experience by volunteering, running charity events and getting involved in the community with us. As part of a sport’s club, you can also boost your CV by getting coaching qualification training through the Students Union.
Here’s the low-down on our successes over the last few years:
2015: First team finished top of their league
2016: Won the Community Award at Colours Ball
2017: Won Raising & Giving Club of the Year, Club of the Year and BUCS Club of the Year
2018: Won Raising and Giving Club of the Year
2019: Won Spotlight Club of the Year, awarded through votes from all university sports members
Members of our first, second and third teams all play in a LUSL league, playing one match every Sunday. Playing at a more competitive level, the first team also play in the BUCS league every Wednesday. Feeling overwhelmed? Don’t be! University sports leagues are as much fun as they are competitive.
While we take our sport seriously, our number one priority is to ensure everyone has a good time! That’s why we hold regular club socials both on and off campus, from fancy dress and karaoke, to team wars and friendly matches. Love a drink at the pub? We have lots of those! Not into booze? Alcohol is always optional and we hold alcohol-free socials as well!
We have a big club Christmas meal every year and have Colours Ball - a dinner, awards ceremony and massive blowout for all sports clubs - to look forward to in March.
And don’t forget about Tour - a brilliant week away to somewhere sunny with your team-mates!
We are a motivated, passionate and friendly bunch, and we take advantage of this on and off the pitch. Fundraising events often overlap with our socials, and we don’t hesitate to raise awareness for causes close to our hearts.
A massive part of our 2018/19 season and an ongoing campaign that we are heavily involved in is Female Is Fierce, which aims to promote, recognise and inspire women and girls in sport. One of our most successful projects was a football tournament we ran for local primary school girls.
Do I have to pay for kit?
You need to buy football socks for £8, but you don’t need to buy the rest of your kit.
What if a lecture clashes with a match?
While we value commitment, of course university courses always take top priority.
Why is the First Team membership cost higher?
Our First Team play two matches per week rather than one. As this provdies opportunity to have more game time, we thought it only fair that this be reflected in our club membership costs.
