Time for another #BUCSWednesday!

After we kicked off the new BUCS season in style last week, we’re looking forward to yet another exciting #BUCSWednesday.

Here’s our picks of the games taking place on Wednesday 21st October, both on and off campus.

MATCH OF THE DAY: Men’s Football 1st vs University of Manchester Men’s 1st

Our men's football team competing against Manchester at Maiden Castle last year.

Last year, they won the double, earning them promotion into the BUCS Northern 1A and returning home from Durham’s Maiden Castle as Champions of the Northern Conference Cup.

And this week, our Cheshire-based team face the very opposition they stole the glory from last March – the University of Manchester men’s 1st team.

Last week saw the team kick off this season’s campaign as they mean to go on – coming from behind away at the University of Leeds to take a 2 – 1 victory over the opposition.

Activities Officer, Lewis Bartlett, will be at Sandbach cheering them on as the team look for a repeat performance!

We’ll be keeping you updated on @MMUSport.

KO: 2:00pm, Sandbach United FC

Women’s Volleyball 1st vs Lancaster 1st

This season is set to be a challenging one for our women’s volleyball team as they settle into the Northern 1A.  We’re great fans of our volleyball club, who always demonstrate positive attitude and awesome team spirit.

Despite last week’s scoreline, the team played with unbreakable motivation, fighting all the way to the end.  This week’s away game against Lancaster should be an exciting one.

Game starts: 7:30pm Sports Hall, Lancaster

Men’s Hockey 1st vs Liverpool John Moores 1st

The team make their way to Liverpool for their first away game of the season tomorrow.  It could be another tough result for the opposition – last week our 2nd team beat them 2 – 1 in the last five minutes.

The team will be looking to repeat that success to continue their domination in the Northern 2A.

Follow updates at @MMUMHC.

PB: 1:00pm, IM Marsh, Liverpool

Women’s Basketball 1st vs Salford 1st

After an extremely close first game of the season last week, our Cheshire-based women’s basketball team make their way to Salford for a late (8pm) tip off against our other neighbours.  The team will be looking for a win to maintain their stronghold in the Northern 2A!

TO: 8:00pm, Salford University Sports Centre

We’ll be keeping you updated with all of the action on @MMUSport.  Best of luck to all of our teams competing on Wednesday!
