• 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.
