Third time lucky for Trent? Or will Uni get the hat-trick?

The Nottingham University Swimming Club has over 100 members, both competitive and casual swimmers training in the university’s Olympic sized pool. Swimming varsity has only been going for the last three years and both years prior to this, Nottingham University have won the competition. This does not mean that the team this year have been sitting on their laurels; intensive training and many university level competitions have been keeping the swim team on a tip top condition.

The swim teams have been going from strength to strength, with the university team this year being on top form in national competitions as a team and with swimmers who have been at the Olympics and the Commonwealth games. The team has also ascended
in the ranks of the BUCS events, both in short course and long course where Nottingham came 5th overall. With Varsity being the last big event in the swimming schedule, Uni are approaching this competition relaxed but ready to take on the challenge and to gain a win in what has so far been a disappointing start to the 2011 competition for the teams in gold.

Monday March 22nd. Meadow Lane. Trent women have just beaten Uni 3-1. The 2010 C.R.Y. Nottingham Varsity Series now stands at 6-4 to Trent. The crowd is building. The chants are being sung, and the two teams are warming up for the start of the men’s football. An electric atmosphere and a terrific scenario must have had both sets of players buzzing before kick-off, I know I was feeling the tension all the way up in the stands in what was a vitally important game for both teams.

Highlights from the night's broadcast:

Nottingham University Women’s football club looked to end six long years of Varsity heartache in their match with Nottingham Trent’s representative XI at Notts County’s Meadow Lane ground. Coming off the back of some slightly disrupted but overly successful preparations, they took to the pitch in high spirits, confident that they could indeed overcome their poor previous record and notch up another point for Nottingham University in the series.
