How To Join/Get Involved

We are looking for anybody who is interested in playing football in their time at university as we cater for all abilities. We currently have three BUCS teams and numerous intra-mural teams which allow all to get involved. We will be present at the Sports Fair on the 23rd of September for those wanting more information. Trials will be held in the first couple of weeks of the semester. If you want any more information or cannot make the trials or sports fair and still want to play don't hesitate to contact with one of the key contacts listed.

Aims For The Year Ahead

This year we have three teams competed in BUCS after adding a Third team due to high demand. The Firsts are hoping to get promoted back into the Northern 1A League and will be competing in the Northern 2B division. Our Second team will be looking to cement a place in the Northern 3B division following promotion last year. The Third team we hope will be able to push on in their first year in BUCS. The club is also aiming to become more involved in fundraising and charity events throughout the year. The intra-mural and social Football sections of the club have massively improved over the previous season and we want to continue this progress through the forthcoming year.

Club Achievements

Our club won Most Improved Club 2013/14 at the university's Sports Awards after a hugely successful season all round for the club. The Club Captains of that year, Rachel Burden and Chloe Parker, also both received Black and Gold Awards. The first team became champions of the BUCS Northern 2B League 2013/14 and have been promoted to the Northern 1A League, the clubs highest league position. The University as a whole won Varsity for the second year running against Sheffield Hallam University.

Events

There are many events to get involved in throughout the year with the club. As well as our weekly training sessions and matches, we hold socials every Wednesday. Opportunities to get involved in fundraising through the club will be available throughout the year. A big highlight on the social side is the annual week of TOUR, which never fails to be an unforgettable week. The annual Varsity competition between the University of Sheffield and Sheffield Hallam is a chance for the club to get involved in supporting a number of university teams from different clubs.
