#BUCSWednesday: our teams aim for Cup quarter finals

We really do a love a #BUCSWednesday Cup week – especially when so many of our teams are flying through the group stages!

This week it’s getting a lot more tense, as many of our teams move into the last 16 of the cup and plate competitions and look to earn their spot in the quarter finals.

Here’s our picks of the games taking place across campus on Wednesday 25th November.

It’s been a great season so far for our men’s rugby union 2s.  Currently unbeaten in both the league and plate competitions, this week’s game sees the team welcome bottom of the table UCLan to Crewe Vagrants in the last 16 of the Northern Conference Plate.

We’re hoping for yet another victory from our team to add to their incredible season so far.

Kick off: 1:00pm, Crewe Vagrants

Men’s Lacrosse 1s vs University of Edinburgh 1s

After winning the double last year, and earning promotion into the Northern 1A it’s been a tough start to the season for our men’s lacrosse team.

This week the team begin their BUCS Trophy campaign, as they welcome Scottish team, University of Edinburgh to Didsbury Cricket Club.

Game starts: 2:00pm, Didsbury Cricket Club

Women’s Volleyball 1s vs University of Glasgow 1s


After reaching the final of the Northern Conference Cup last year and earning promotion into the Northern 1A this year, our women’s volleyball team also embark on their BUCS Trophy campaign this week, as they welcome University of Glasgow to the Sugden Sports Centre.

Game starts: 2:30pm, Sugden Sports Centre

Netball 1s vs University of Manchester 2s


It’s not a proper #BUCSWednesday without a local derby taking place.  This week, our netball 1s welcome University of Manchester 2s to the Sugden Sports Centre as they look to continue their unbeaten season by claiming a spot in the quarter finals of the Northern Conference Cup.

Game starts: 4:30pm, Sugden Sports Centre

Women’s Basketball 1s vs University of Liverpool 2s


After receiving a bye in the first round, our women’s basketball 1s take to the court for their first Northern Conference Cup game of the season.  Welcoming Northern 3A team, Liverpool 2s, to the Cheshire Sports Centre, we’re hoping for a solid win for the team to cement their spot in the quarter finals.

Tip off: 5:30pm, Cheshire Sports Centre.

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