After fantastic performances in the BUCS Nationals at Sheffield this weekend, #BUCSWednesday returns and our teams are ready to bring more success. This week we have a mixture of important cup and league matches to be played, with a few teams having the chance to secure more league titles!
Here’s our pick of the matches to look out for on Wednesday 24th February!
MATCH OF THE DAY: Men’s Golf 1s vs Keele 1s
Our brand new club for 15/16 have had a great start to their BUCS Campaign. They’re currently 2nd in the Northern 3A, three points behind leaders Liverpool 2s with a game in hand. Tomorrow, in their penultimate game of the season, they host bottom of the table Keele 1s in a must win game down at Chorlton Golf Club. This is the second week in a row they have faced eachother. Last week, Keele were 3.5-2.5 winners in this occasion but our men’s team started 2 men down so did very well in those circumstances. A win tomorrow, will put them level on points with Liverpool 2s, however, they will claim the league title going down to a head to head basis, ensuring promotion into league 2A next year! Good luck lads we’ll be rooting for you!
Tee off: 11:15pm, Chorlton Golf Club
Men’s Hockey 1s (Manchester) vs Men’s Hockey 2s (Cheshire)
Both dominating forces at the top of the BUCS Northern 2A league, our men’s hockey 1st and 2nd teams come head-to-head in the battle for the Northern 2A league title this Wednesday. As it stands, both teams are tied on 18 points at the top, 8 points clear from third place UCLan 1s. Therefore, we are guaranteed a promotion into league 1A! Both teams won their last league matches earlier on in the month. The last time the two teams met, back in November, the 1s came back from Cheshire with a 4-2 victory. We’ll be on the edge of our seats waiting to hear the result from this week’s game. Good luck to both teams!
Game starts: 3:30pm, Timperley Sports Club
Men’s Rugby League 1s vs Oxford Brookes 1s
The season keeps on getting better and better for our men’s rugby league 1s. After their fantastic 51-4 victory against Loughborough 2s last week, they travel down to Oxford Brookes for their quarter final match. Oxford Brookes 1s currently lie bottom of the Midlands 1A, our men’s team will hope for a repeat of last weeks result and progress into the semi final of the BUCS Rugby League Trophy!
Game starts: 2:00pm, Westminster Campus
Netballs 1s vs Lancaster 1s
Its’s a first vs second clash in the Northern 2A this Wednesday and what a game this could turn out to be! All our women’s team need to do is draw or win to claim the Northern 2A title for the first time in over 10 years! Tomorrow, they face Lancaster 1s for the second time this season. Back in November, they were comfortable winners at Sugden Sports Centre, winning 60-31. They will hope to repeat their win here and keep up their 100% record this season! Good luck girls!
Game starts: 4:00pm, Lancaster Sports Hall 1.
We’ll be keeping you updated with all of the action on @MMUSport. Best of luck to all of our teams competing tomorrow!
