Many of our sports clubs compete in regular fixtures organised by BUCS (British Universities & Colleges Sport) against other universities. These generally take place on Wednesday afternoons at the Sports Village and we'd love you to come along to cheer on the teams when they're playing at home. Check out the BUCS website for details of forthcoming fixtures.
Results for 22 February:
Three wins for Netball 2nd and 3rd and Men’s Lacrosse keep them at the top of their league. Ultimate finish their league season against the national champions, battling well but in the end falling short.
A lot of weekend action as well. Men’s Futsal 1st also had a win to stay top of the table meaning it all comes down to the last game for Men’s Futsal. If they can hold it together it will be their first league win in the Premier South, our fingers are crossed for you boys! Cricket, despite not being mentioned in the overall table, has been the Cardiff and Leeds over the last 2 weekends as they competed in the Indoor Cricket cup. They did superbly well to get into the Men’s last 16 in Cardiff, played some tough opposition cruising through to get to the Super 8 draw last weekend, which is comprised of the best 8 teams in the country. Hertfordshire began their campaign against Northumbria and then Sheffield Hallam, losing out by only a few points each time. Then it was time to play Cardiff Met, tipped to win the tournament, Cardiff were odds on favourite but a little Hertfordshire magic and some hard work and Herts secured a win! Overall Hertfordshire came 5th in the country for Indoor Cricket which is an immense achievement for the club!
Next week Hertfordshire Netball 1st will begin their cup run against Leeds Beckett 1st. It will be a great game to watch so make sure you get a good view from the balcony.
