Men’s Football 4’s are the champions

The game was summed up perfectly by fourth team captain Joshua Karl Vincent.

“Heading into what was the last ever Christ Church game for a lot of my players we were very nervous for the occasion.

“A win would see us win the league, a loss would mean we would have to hope the team in second lost as well.

“After a nervous first 20 minutes we began to settle down and play our football.

“After we had two goals disallowed we managed to get the 2-0 win we deserved claiming the league title.

“I couldn’t be any prouder of my team as this is what we have worked for all year.”

Women’s Rugby clinch the title

Captain Aegean Leech was ecstatic after the Rugby Women won the league with an impressive 74-19 win.

She said: “So this marked our last game this season.

“A win would secure us the league and put us into the play offs for premiership.

“We put our full force out and stormed the win 74-19.

Women’s Rugby won the league in style.

“There were a lot of tears, mixture of happiness and sadness(13 of our girls are leaving this year-including myself).

“We left that pitch with our heads held higher than ever before and spent our night getting more bevvy than we ever have got.

“This year has been a pleasure for me and I couldn’t have wished for a better team and group of friends.”

Back to back 3-0 wins for Men’s 1’s Football

The Men’s 1’s had two games this week with them winning both by the scoreline 3-0 against Kings College and Hertfordshire.

Last Sunday the team were down to just their starting 11 making the away trip to second in the league Kings College even harder.

Captain Ollie Mentessi said: “The boys dug deep and an inspired performance from our make shift striker, De’Anno Jeffers, led the way for the 1’s.”

The goals came from Danio Brown, Junior Brown and De’Anno Jeffers.

The Boys got two 3-0 wins in the week.

For Wednesday’s game they faced another tough test against Hertfordshire.

The game ultimately ended in another 3-0 win for the 1’s who are in a real vein of form at the moment.

A brace from skipper, Ollie Mentessi, and a Marcel Brown goal earned the 1’s the points #TheUnthinkableContinues

“Get down to the Sports Centre for 5:15 to cheer on the girls.”

Netball 1’s top the table with a game to go

Netball firsts played Queen Mary’s and beat them 80-22, not only does this put them back to the top of the league it puts them in a really good position to win the league altogether next Wednesday.

The Men are a force this season

Netball 2’s end season on a high

The Netball 2’s have had a great season.

“Set plays were exceptional which is reflected with the score and everyone on the team put in 100%.
