Women’s Football: Varsity 2012, 18/05/12

17th May 2012

The 2012 Varsity Series heats up to boiling point on Friday night as the University of Nottingham Women’s Football team seek to undo the heartbreak of a penalty-shoot out loss last year to their archrivals, Nottingham Trent.

With the overall Varsity scores standing at 7-5 in Uni’s favour, a win for the girls would seal an emphatic Uni victory in the Series. Hopes for the Uni ladies are certainly high, with them coming fresh off the back of a hugely successful league campaign which saw them crowned BUCS Midlands 1A Division champions.

Trent, meanwhile, faced the ignominy of relegation from the BUCS Premier North Division and will be hoping to compensate for a thoroughly disappointing season with a win on Friday. Either way, the pressure is high on both teams, as Trent fight to keep their Varsity hopes alive and Uni seek to tie up what could be a resounding victory in the series.

The electric atmosphere at Meadow Lane stadium is sure to provide an unforgettable experience for the players on both sides, who will be giving everything to try and claim glory for their university.
