Men’s Tennis start slow but finish with a high:

Canterbury 1st played against LSE 2nd.

Their president said: “The game didn’t start as well as it should have.

“Their was a slow start because they were supposed to meet at 10:50am, but there were some confusions as the opposing team captain asked to see university ID’s.

“After the turmoil the game finally started.”

Highlights included Ben Millers game.

“He (Miller) got a good start breaking early in the 1st set.

“His next serve game he was 40-0 up and finished the game 18 minutes later after about 348 deuces.

“Despite the longest game ever Miller went 2-0 up which then instantly his opponent held service game which meant 2-1.

He played intelligently and took an extremely comfortable win of 6/1 6/2.

Men’s football 2nd’s get back on track:

The Men’s football 2nd’s returned to winning ways with a 4-0 win against opponents Medway. Four goals in 20 minutes meant that there only looked like one winner.

“We had goals from George Ackah (x2), Jase Fregene and Ahmed Euba.

“We went down to 10 men late in the first half, but the boys worked hard and kept a clean sheet.”

Women’s hockey 1st getting closer to CCCU history

The 1st’s won 6-0 against today’s opponents Sussex

Captain Edie Kelly said: “It was great to get back to winning ways.

“Rebecca Weston and Laura Buttimer scored and both played incredibly – they really held the team together.

“This means we’re still top and 3 points clear and our next game is against 2nd place.

“So we just need to keep training hard and play our own game on the day.

“And hopefully reach the playoffs for the first time in Christ Church history.

Women’s football 2nd slump to 5-0 loss

With one player hospitalised there wasn’t many positives from today’s game.

Although the girls did their best, not much could have been done about the score.



Women’s tennis

Ladies faced UCL 3rds and did their job quite well with special thanks to Annie Fitzsimmons for proving the team with her excellent comedy.

Georgie Farrugia Sacco and Ozay Barutcu paired up even though they were injured they won easily 6/2 6/1.


Women’s Netball 1sts victory against Queen Mary

The ladies 1st team smashed it against Queen Mary 2nds with a final score of 77-27.

Here was a final word from player of the match Lucinda Rosewomen-netball:

“Every single player was really focussed today and timed their drives perfectly, giving first-time balls and great hard and flat passes.

I got player of the match but for me it was Sophie Geddes, our GA. She worked amazingly with our GS Elloise Rosen, running behind her to receive great feeds from our WAs Abbie Webster and Katie Hurley in the two halves. Sophie must’ve missed only 3 or 4 shots (where she’d get the rebound off the hoop anyway) throughout the whole match and due to her brilliant fitness was able to give 110% for the whole game.

There was some really lovely netball against nice girls, and we could practice different combinations and concentrate on particular things ready to play their 1st team next week!”
