The Midland Conference Cup competition started four months ago in November 2018 with sixty four teams competing to progress successfully through the six rounds to yesterday’s finals. Three University of Leicester and Team Leicester teams, Men’s Football 1st’s, Men’s Water polo and Golf 1st’s successfully navigated all of the rounds, taking part in yesterday’s final.

In a pulsating match, Men’s Football 1st team (BUCS Midland 3) overcame a very determined University of East Anglia team (BUCS Midlands 2), securing the title with two goals in the last ten minutes of the match. This season the 1st team are unbeaten this season in all of their BUCS matches. Two weeks ago they secured the BUCS Midlands 3 league title, so last night was a double celebration.

Earlier in the day at Ruddington Grange Golf Club, the Golf 1st team dominated Nottingham University 2nd team. In very wet and windy conditions the University of Leicester team mastered the tricky conditions far better than their opponents, running out winners by 5.5-0.5.
