Term One was a busy term for our NTU sports teams

NTU finished 2013 in 21st place in BUCS with 842.5 points - not bad following the first third of the season, with confidence high of at least matching our best ever finishing position of 17th in the BUCS championship when we get to the end of Term Three.

Some highlights from Term One of BUCS:

  • Women's Football 1st team are riding high in the Northern Premier League, currently 3rd and beat Loughborough 1st team for the 1st time in their history.
  • Men's Football 1st team are top of the Midlands First League and going strong in their search for promotion in 2014, having lost only once in 2013.
  • Men's Lacrosse 1st team are also top of the Midlands First League and are also looking to achieve promotion.
  • Men's Rugby League 1st team are proving themselves in the Southern Premier League, currently 3rd and have been going from strength to strength in every match.
  • Men's Rugby Union 1st team have proven to be a force in the Northern Premier B, sitting 3rd in the league at the Christmas break.
  • Women's Rugby Union are the team to beat in the Midlands First League this year, with great performances and results meaning they vie for 1st place.
  • All Table Tennis teams are performing exceptionally – the Men's 1st team have all but won the Northern Premier League. The Women's 1st face tough games against University of Nottingham, but will look to continue their winning streak. In addition, both NTU Men's and Women's 2nd teams are top of their leagues.
  • Men's Volleyball are doing great in their first year of BUCS competition, winning all their games and making their dominance clear!
