It has been another exciting month for history sport with lots of drama and a few tears. History FC have had a good month so far with comfortable wins against Hulme Hall and the Hindu Society, and have progressed into the next round of both Campus Sport Cups. The game against the Hindu Society was particularly impressive as the team came from a goal down to win 2-1 with 9 men after team members Harry Almond and Pat Harvey suffered severe injuries in the second half. We wish them both the best and a speedy recovery. It does seem like the one-man cheerleading squad rooting for the team is finally playing off though. History FC’s most avid supporter, otherwise known as ‘professor’ is a former lecturer at the University and has yet to miss a game this season, it must be the charming allure of our players that keeps him going back.
Meanwhile the Netball team have continued to put out consistently good performances on the court and narrowly missed out on victory in their last game of the semester. Having dominated the game for the first three quarters, they let their lead slip away with fatigue creeping in and sloppy looping passes losing by a marginal 3 goals. Despite the loss, Josie Roberts came away with player of the match, which was well deserved after an excellent display as a Centre. Meanwhile, Evie Grant and Laura Sullivan have also been graced with player of the match; Laura’s performances in particular as wing defence have proven crucial to the team.
Once again, well done to all the players who have contributed to all our sports teams in some way. Good luck in all your forthcoming games, but make sure not to eat too mince pies over the Christmas break, there are still games in the New Year!
