Since September 2015 the woman’s football team at UKC have continued to grow in size and skill. This showed when they won the league two years in a row (2015 & 2016), unbeaten. More impressively their first team has won every game with a goal difference greater than 3. The woman’s football team now stands in the premier division (1A) for the BUCS league, and aim to keep their winning streak running and reach and exceed their potential.

Woman’s football achievement doesn’t stop there. Their second team have impressively won their league last season and have been able to get to the final of the Kent Cup for two years in a row. Although losing doesn’t come naturally to these players, with the upcoming games and opponents, it will no doubt be a fight to keep the winning streak going.

Varsity is always a big part of every season, and has been a sore subject for the past two years. 0-0 after 90 minutes and no extra time meant the girls fought hard and played their best but unfortunately lost on penalties. This year they are aiming high, and believe with hard work, commitment and unity, results and performances will show their strengths.

The 2017-2018 year has brought a new positive attitude to the season. Recruiting many skillful players, they hope to achieve great things. The woman have a tough season ahead of them, playing against exceptionally good teams, they started the season off on a good note, with a 2-1 home win against Sussex. In addition, the new committee have brought a new outlook and approach on running the club. Fundraising and promoting the club is one of their main objectives this season. Fighting for issues such as ‘This Girl Can’ and raising money for charities is one of their main priorities. Woman’s football isn’t just about playing a sport, it is about being part of a team, creating bonds and memories between each player.
