With Roses preparations already impressing upon us, a handful of teams within reach of claiming victory in their British Universities and Colleges Sport (BUCS) league competitions, alongside the race for inter-college titles – this term is undoubtedly set to be packed full of sporting coverage and opportunity.
At a glance, the BUCs teams currently lying top of their tables are the Men’s Basketball firsts, Netball seconds, Men’s Rugby League firsts and Women’s Rugby Union firsts. All of these teams will certainly look to this term as a consolidation effort to ensure that they remain at the very top of their game and maintain their hard-earned positions.
Nonetheless, the Women’s Basketball firsts, Women’s Hockey firsts, Netball firsts and the Men’s Firsts squash team are all lying in prime second places of their respective leagues meaning that this term is certainly their opportunity to begin their attack and make their opportunistic moves on the top spots.
Inter-college sport is turning up the heat this term as Cartmel, Pendle and County battle it out to win the Football A League, whilst Furness seek to upset Fylde’s winning campaign in the Netball equivalent. Now, more than ever, is the time to get behind your college and show your support to those who are representing you!
If you want to become more involved in sport this term, whether it is to meet new friends, try something new or in a bid to maintain your healthy new year’s resolutions – there is still ample opportunity to do so. Refresher’s Fair is set to be held on Tuesday 24th January from 4pm until 7pm, where societies will be welcoming you with open arms to get you signed up.
Now really is the time to get involved in sport because with a home Roses 2012 looming ever closer, Lancaster certainly need as much participation and enthusiasm to bring the James Carter trophy back to where it belongs!
