Start of BUCS Season 2016

Wednesday the 12th marks the start of the 2016/17 BUCS season. Having undergone weeks of trials and pre-season training and matches, all of the Sussex Sports teams are ready and raring to go.

Men’s Football president and first team player, Billy Dobinson is confident about the new season:

At Sussex Men's Football we couldn't be more excited for the BUCS season to begin. With the strongest squad the Uni has ever had to offer and the first team in league 1A, the joint highest league the team has ever competed in, there is a big year ahead. With some great new freshers and a lot of boys even staying on for masters courses, the team is ready to make Sussex Football history.

Holly Cutter, club captain for Netball, says:

Having had two brilliant wins in both of our pre-season friendly matches, I am really looking forward to seeing the squad continue our success in the BUCS league.
