Team Derby’s BUCS Football Roundup
Team Derby Women’s Football 1sts demolished table-toppers and local rivals Nottingham Trent University with an emphatic 7-1 victory.
Millie Elson’s 40-yard screamer stood out among goals from Hannah Roberts, Evie Garner, Alice Hall, Holly Percival and a brace from Hannah Barber.
Their male counterparts also achieved the result they needed, although the scoreline wasn’t as much of a landslide. The Men’s First Team won 3-1 against Nottingham Trent University, with Sam Birks netting either side of Elijah Luka’s strike.
A fantastic collective effort from the Men’s Fifth Team saw them seal a comfortable 7-0 win against Harper Adams University. Man of the Match James Wilson’s first-half hat-trick set the tone for the game, and both Ollie King and Ieuan Ivett added two each to round off a sensational performance.
In other results, the Men’s Third and Fourth teams came back with away draws against the University of Leicester and the University of Birmingham respectively.
The Men’s Second Team fell just short of salvaging a point against Aston University 1sts. The visitors won 3-2 despite conceding a late own goal and the home side fighting back in the second half.
