A strong start as uni found themselves 1-0 up after Kevin Wong deflected a bouncing ball into the roof of the net with his first touch. However the Dundonians scored a scrappy goal to level the game at half time. Fresher David Mawhinney restored uni’s lead after rounding the keeper and shooting from a tight angle. Wanderer’s scored two more scrappy goals before Callum White scored an important equaliser from close range. The end-to-end game had a befitting dramatic end as Dundee scored a short corner, followed by a trademark Davyn drag flick to bring uni level. Overall, it was an exciting but disappointing game seeing Edinburgh gaining just the one point.

It’s that time of year again.
Alumni, time to return once again to Edinburgh for boozy weekend full of everything you loved most about your time at university.
Freshers, a chance for you to meet those people you’ve heard us talk so much about, and learn how to properly play a game of bunnies
Plan as follows:
Friday – Meet 5 o’clock at Stramash, our sponsor pub for some drinks prior to the final big cheese of the year.
Saturday – Due to Peffermill being unavailable, this years hockey tournament will be held at Meggatland Sports Complex. From 11 o’clock to 1 o’clock there will be a 6 aside social tournament before a break for lunch. After a break for lunch (and pints) we will have the main event…. a students vs alumni mixed match. Obviously punishments for the losing side.
That evening we will meet at 8 o’clock at Stramash for a buffett before kicking a good old school pub crawl. Club details to follow!
Finally, on the sunday (and weather dependant) there will be a BBQ lunch before our very own tour secs Henry Melville and Anni Arthur take over for those of you luck and brave enough to be heading of on tour!!
Prices; £10 for Students and £15 for Alumni. To book your spot, pay into the club account and get in touch with Euan Christie or Louise Mcphillips to confirm your space (deadline Sunday 21st May) . Teams will be announced once we have everyone confirmed.
Hope to see as many of you there as possible

• 1’s The 1s continued their 100% record in BUCS Prem. B, north conference, with a 1-0 win over Newcastle. A hard fought victory with the hosts threatening on numerous occasions. The Edinburgh defence held firm and in the last 10 minutes, short corner specialist Antonis Efthymiou, secured the victory with a drag flick
• 3’s The BUCS fixture between Edinburgh University 4s and Edinburgh University 3s is always going to be a grudge fixture, and so it was. The 4s went in front early with a goal slid in by Luke Perkins, however when the 3s equalised through a Freddie Filor short corner scramble it was all to play for. Tension ran high in the second half, and with a few raised voices and various cards, it was great to see both teams’ passion for the win. The 4s made it 2-1 with a Felix Claridge deflection, until in the final minute where the 3’s Hugo Howarth scored off a short corner, making it 2-2. The 4s robbed of what would be a memorable win. Nonetheless, a fantastic day with brilliant performances all round
• 5 – The 5’s opened their Bucs account with a solid 4-0 victory over Aberdeen 3s. First half goals from Robin and Murdo rewarded the 5’s for their first half dominance. Second half, legs got tired and a string of Aberdeen chances followed, thwarted by the excellent Tammo. Super sub Nedwards scored the decisive goal on his debut before Tom Marchant sealed the win with a superb short corner strike, earning him Mom. 5 wins out of 5, the 5s go marching on.

With the Men’s Hockey season well and truly underway most of our members enjoyed a well-earned day off this Wednesday. However, there were 2 teams still in action. The 1st XI began their defence of the BUCS North Premier B title at home to Birmingham University 2s. Edinburgh started quickly, going 3-0 up in the first 10 minutes courtesy of strikes from Jack Henderson, Ross Jamieson and Alan Oldham. The visitors managed to steady the ship and rallied to pull themselves back into the game with a goal, however this was quickly cancelled out by fresher Callum White to leave a 4-1 score line at the interval. The second half proceeded in a similar fashion to the first with Edinburgh edging possession and territory. Despite Birmingham remaining dangerous on the counter attack, EUMHC’s sustained pressure eventually told with the first XI getting their 5th and 6th goals in the afternoon to ensure a comfortable ending to the game. This result leaves Edinburgh on top of the pile after the first round of fixtures.
The only other team who were in action were the 5’s whose cup game got off to a blistering start, as they found themselves 5-0 up almost instantly. Rather than being through Calum Webb’s blistering attacking skills the real reason for this goal fest was the lack of an opposition so therefore the game had to be forfeited. Instead an extended half was played, incidentally won 3-0 by EUMHC. Goals included a lovely team goal finished by Sam Angell with Jordan Fitzpatrick scoring a dazzling solo goal. To round off the afternoon, captain Gavin Minty finally converted a penalty flick. Bring on the next round.

Rivalry. A word which tells you everything you need to know when discussing any fixture between the Edinburgh Uni 2s and their more talented, and better-looking, counterparts – the mighty 3s. On this occasion, the 2s had sunk even lower into the depths of depravity in their desire for victory. Not only did their side contain the two greatest traitors of the modern era, Charlie Cook and Guy Allen, but they also had the audacity to draft two first team players. Euan Christie, you need to take a long, hard look in the mirror. The 3s on the other hand, deprived of their superstar fresh Angus Sandison who had travelled to Durham to see his bird (tut tut tut), were forced to call upon the aid of two members of the 4s who gallantly came to their aid. As everyone could see, the odds were stacked against the 3s but everyone loves an underdog.
The game began at a frantic pace – the 3s rampant. The 3s’ onslaught was incessant as Tom Beddis and Harry Scott fed the forwards with consummate ease yet a lack of accuracy in the final third was once again their undoing. After the 3s landed a few opening blows on the chin of the 2s it was time for their adversary to repay the favour… with interest. The 2s started to dominate the midfield and ultimately broke the deadlock midway through the half. The 3s, however, responded well to this setback as they pushed hard for an equaliser. Chances fell to Jack Friend, Ruari Gillepsie and Jack Preece among others but once again they were not taken. Having hauled themselves back into contention, it was the cruellest of blows for the 2s to score on the stroke of halftime and take an unjustified 2-0 lead into the interval.
The second half followed a very similar pattern. As the 3s pushed hard for an equaliser chance after chance was made but none taken. With the 3s run ragged it is no surprise that the 2s netted two more goals in the final quarter of the match.
The scoreline of 4-0, however, does not reflect how hard fought a game this was and the 3s will take confidence into the return leg on Wednesday. As they say, “Aint not mountain high”.
