Christmas Round Up
M1s - After a poor start the M1s have hit some form with a last minute win against Hallam and an encouraging perfomance against top of the table Manchester. Things are looking up for the boys. With still half of the league season to go George Collier and his team will be looking for strong end to the season and a good performance in varsity.
W1s - It looks like Fiona Small and her team will have a battle with Liverpool Uni to the tile of Northern 1A. With some big games to come including Liverpool coming to Goodwin it is all still in their hands. Another varsity win and potential playoffs are all on the horizon for the W1s, it promises to be a great 2018 for them.
M2s - Still in the cup and fighting in the league. With many trips up to the North East and an ever changing team its not been easy for Sam Wickett and his team. However a demolition of Leeds shows that it is well with in their grasp to have a successful 2018.
W3s - Similar to the M2s its been a tricky end to 2017. With what seemed like almost weekly trips to Durham the W2s have negotiated all of this and look forward to a number of games at Goodwin. A 1-0 away win against top of the table Durham 3s must be the highlight of the season so far. There is no reason why the W2s cant dring this form into 2018 and end with a varsity win.
M3s - The M3s have had a hugely successful season so far the 3s head into christmas top of the league and undefeated. A huge game against Huddersfield remains which will surely decide who wins the league and heads into playoffs. The 3s are also still in the cup which means a domestic double maybe on the cards which would have to mean that this could be the most successful M3s SUHC side ever. 2018 promises to be a fantastic year for the M3s.
W4s - Rosie Williams and her team are yet again sitting clear at the top of the league. Having not lost a league game in over year it almost seems a formality that the W4s will go into a playoff this year. With quite a lot of movement in terms of personnel it bodes well for the 4s that they continue to win. The stiffest opposition being our 5s it would be fantastic for the club to get the 4s promoted this year.
M4s - The M4s have had a tough start to Tier 5 this season. With the 3s and Huddersfield coming down the standard has been significantly higher than in previous years. However the 4s pushed the 3s all the way in the first game of the season and have looked threatening when they go forward. A season of consolidation which can be built upon next year for a promotion push.
W5s - The W5s have once again had it tough wiht th ethe fact the W4s are in their league. However sitting 2nd in the league suggests that next year could be there year. Their only slip up this term being against our 4s with a narrow 2-1 loss demonstrates that the quality is there and can definitely help get them promoted.
M5s/W6s - Our non-BUCS teams have enjoyed a successful end to 2017 with a number of close games against the Medics. Presason brought trips away and it has been fantastic to see the numbers of players increase this year. 2018 promises to bring more games increasing development as we look to push both teams into BUCS.
