More title success for UCFB football teams
Hot on the heels of numerous title successes from UCFB sports teams in the BUCS league last week, more of our sides from both campuses have claimed championship wins this week to add further silverware to the UCFB cabinet…
Women’s 1st, South Eastern 3A league
The women secured their league title in style by thrashing the University of Brighton 2nd 9-0 with one game spare. With just a trip to King’s College London 2nd to go, the girls will be looking to make it ten wins out of ten this season.
Men’s 3rd, South Eastern 7C league
Like their female counterparts, the men were crowned league champions after cruising to a 6-1 win away at the University of Westminster 2nd. They also have the chance to go the season unbeaten when they go to University for the Creative Arts Surrey 1st next week.
Men’s 1st, Northern 3A league
The guys continued the trend of league success this week, with their 3-1 win over MMU 1st – coupled with Bangor University 1st losing to MMU 2nd – ensuring another championship for UCFB. Racing into a 3-0 lead at half-time, the boys played the second half at their own pace in blustery conditions.

Men’s 2nd, Northern 5C league
After beating MMU 5th 2-1, the boys have set up a title decider next week against University of Bolton 1st, where a win will secure the league title. A draw would be enough though if MMU 5th fail to win either of their two remaining games.
Men’s 3rd, Northern 6D
The boys beat University of Bradford 2nd 4-1 at home to finish the season in third place, with four wins and four defeats.
Men’s 4th, Northern 7A
It was a similar story for the 4s as well, this time with an 8-1 home win over University of Bradford 3rd, to finish the season in third place with four wins and four defeats.
Women’s 1st, Northern 3A league
After securing the title last week, the girls drew 1-1 away at Keele University to finish the season unbeaten, impressively conceding just four league goals all year.
