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...

On 15th October the 2s beat Solihull Blossomfield 3s 9-0 at home in what can only be described as an epic victory. For the third match of the season the girls gelled beautifully and utilised set plays and short corners to the maximum. The opposition didn’t know what had hit them and could only stand back and admire as goal after goal soared past their goalie. This was a fantastic way to start off the 2s ‘Project Promotion’ campaign. Long may the triumphs continue!...

Score-2-1

Following a pretty unsuccessful season in the WWHL our teamwork and training finally came into our match play in our second to last match. The girls worked incredibly hard and managed to secure a 2-1 win! As only our second win of the season this was a massive confidence boost and showed that despite the season drawing to a close we were continuing to fight for every match.
