Southampton Men’s Football 1st Team will not be playing in Varsity


Southampton University’s Men’s Football 1sts will not be playing in this year’s Varsity competition this coming Sunday, choosing instead to focus their efforts on a push for promotion in the BUCS League.

The team currently sits in second place  in the BUCS Football Western 2A division, just 2 points behind leaders Bristol with a game in hand. Given the choice between participating in Varsity or a trip to 4th place Exeter in the league, the team have chosen to put their league priorities ahead of this Sunday’s Varsity.

As a result, the fixture that was due to take place at 1.30pm between Southampton 1sts and Portsmouth 1sts has been cancelled.
