Men’s Football 1’s win the league

The Men’s Football team registred back-to-back wins to lift the league title.

Men’s Football 1s beat Men’s Football 2s 3-0 last night which takes us onto tomorrow for a chance to win the league.

The first team first of all beat the C4 second team 3-0 which meant they needed one more win to claim silverware.

They then went on to beat Queen Mary’s 1’s 4-0 to win it.

Captain Ollie Mentessi said: “We travelled to Queen Mary’s needing a win and nothing less in order to win the league.

“We’ve had the hardest run to win the league, playing six games in two and half weeks.

“It was a tough ask but we’ve won all of those six and the boys have made me the proudest captain.

“Goals  came from Louie Debnam, Adam Williams and a brace from Danio Brown.

“It’s been an absolute pleasure playing with these boys and to captain them is something I will remember forever.

“Hopefully the lads can kick on in 2B next year.”

Netball 1’s claim the title

Netball firsts beat royal vets 63-15 to win the league.

Captain Abbie Webster said: “Not only that but we get promoted to division 1.

“All the girls have come on and improved so much over the course of the year.”

Women’s LAX claim second spot

Women’s Lacrosse played Essex and won 17-3.

Captain Noora Virtanen was very pleased after her teams result.

She said: ”I’m so proud of everyone for working so hard today. I couldn’t have hoped for a better game to end the season with. The game leaves us 2nd in our league which is the best we’ve done in years!”

Women’s Football 1’s end as they started

The Women’s Football 1’s ended their season as they started with a solid performance winning 10-0.

Captain Chloe Woolaway summed the game perfectly.

She said: “So with UEL having won the league because of aggregate score and not goal difference, I told the girls to put that at the back of their minds and go into it as if it was all down to goal difference.

“We won 10-0.

“The performance and score line pretty much summed up our season of smashing the opposition week in week out.

“We sit top of the league on goal difference, in hope that us and UEL will both get promoted.

“I am so proud of all the girls who played and have played for the 1s this season.”

“It’s been a pleasure being their captain and leading them to what has been a great season for us.”

Women’s Football 2’s lose to LSE

The 2s unfortunately lost 4-0 to LSE.

Chloe Woolaway said: “They were very lucky to get the score they did as they struggled to even make a pass most of the game and their goals just came from unfortunate lack of attention.

Men’s Futsal beat Essex in a must win game

Men’s Futsal won a must win game vs Essex, 10-3. There was also a  record attendance for a Futsal match played at CCCU and they also raised some money for charity.

“We prepared the team really well throughout the week having high intensity training.

“When the day came we made sure we were focused on getting the three points.

“Some great goals scored by Joe Henley and Micky Dillon really helped us get the edge over Essex.

“It was a great day for the team but also a great day for the sport at CCCU.

“So both myself and all the team would like to thank everyone that came down and showed their support.”
