Having ended last term in 8th place in Saturday league and 6th place in BUCs, the 2s have improved on both of these, finishing in 6th and 5th place respectively.  

In Saturday league, this half of the season has been really successful, with 6 wins, 3 draws and 3 losses. We also scored 22 goals! Our last game of the season was somehow also our biggest win with a margin of 5.0. Since we were only promoted into this league at the end of last season, we should definitely consider 6th place here a huge success. Reflecting again on the quality of our team, our goals this season have been spl...

The 2s have had a promising start overall this year, after securing promotion in our WWHL Saturday League last season.

First of all, let's talk Saturday league. After a somewhat one-sided season last year (did you say almost undefeated?), this one has started much more competitively, with a mixed set of results from very balanced fixtures. Now that our league has 12 teams rather than the 10 we had last year, we have more fixtures. This definitely led to a slow start for us since 2 of these happened before our fab freshers even arrived, causing no end of selection issues. It also means that...

Term 2 has been a great one for the 2nd team. Spoiler alert but we finished TOP OF THE LEAGUE in our Saturday WWHL division, with 47 points, and guaranteed ourselves promotion to Division 2.

We maintained our winning streak – only losing one match all year, which was aeons ago on the 30th September (before half of the fresh had even moved to uni). We had some emphatic scores, winning 7-0 against Birmingham Wasps and Solihull Blossomfield, 6-1 against Sutton Coldfield and 5-0 against Berkswell, who we had drawn 0-0 against when we first played them in November. As a team, we conceded the lea...

The first half of the season has been an extremely promising one for the 2nd team, as we sit comfortably in promotion zone in our WWHL league and are mid-table for BUCS.

We have had an amazing fresher intake, with 8 fresh regularly playing for the 2s, leading to some very lengthy fresh factor performances. Our new waterbase astro has made training at 9pm on a Monday a much more exciting experience this season, and we have been lucky enough to participate in training matches against both the 1s and the 3s on the new surface.

Training also allowed to us to sort out our nightmare short corner...

The 2s have had a mixed season with most members of the squad experiencing at least one injury, some more severe than others. However, we haven’t let this deter us and have battled hard in our leagues, scoring a record number of goals on a Saturday and ensuring that the coveted ‘Golden stick’ award goes to our wonderful 2s captain for next year, Charlotte Lloyd. Unfortunately we will get relegated from our BUCS league but look set to finish in a solid 3rd place in our Saturday league, which will set an excellent base for next season! We have enjoyed multiple socials including a team meal a...

The 2s fifth BUCS match of the season on 16th November saw them take on Lincoln 1s, a mere week after losing to them 4-0 in a cup match. However, this time the match was on home turf and the team was more determined than ever. After dropping behind 1-0 the girls managed to equalise, before falling behind once again. Determination, adrenaline and anger kicked in - we were determined not to lose again this week. Finally a second goal snuck past the Lincoln goalie and we managed to hold on to a 2-2 draw at full time. An excellent result following a frustrating defeat the week before!...

Score-4-1

Being our last BUCS match of the season this was always going to be an emotional one. Luckily, Stafford were bottom of the league which gave us a clear chance to shine. After an hour and a half lying in the sun watching the UWMHC 3rd XI we were slightly lacking the enthusiasm to get up and play ourselves.  After a rocky start, on a horrible pitch, we managed to secure a 1-0 lead by half time off a short corner. Spurred on by the boys in the second half, and after adjusting to the (interesting) terrain we pulled out an impressive 4-0 win! This was a great end to a cracking season a...
