PrintBy Karen Gadhia – Reporter

If you want to represent UCLan then the BUCS leagues are a great way to do that as well as meeting new people, getting into shape and travelling to other universities.

British Universities and Colleges Sport (BUCS) offers a wide range of sports including American football, ultimate Frisbee and fencing.

There are also specific women’s teams for lots of sports including football, rugby union and basketball.

Last season the UCLan 5th football team played at the Carrington Training Centre where Manchester City trained until earlier this year.

Captain of the UCLan 5th football team, Luke Rathbone talked about his experience of playing in BUCS competition saying it was “Really enjoyable! With the amount of leagues, it caters for differing levels of ability amongst students!”

He added: “Nearly all the games feel like rivalries as you’re representing your university against another university and you never want them to have the bragging rights so there’s a real competitive edge!”

“You get to play at some great facilities and some universities have a lot to offer, which adds to the level of enjoyment and makes it worthwhile.”
