Women’s 1st XI

The Women’s 1st XI at the University has developed over the past few years to become a competitive team which supports International level players.

The team currently competes in the Scottish 1A League in British Universities & College Sport (BUCS) on Wednesdays, which they were promoted to in 2018 from Scottish 2A. After being moved up, they have remained a strong competitor in the higher league this past year. On weekends the team plays in National League 2,  which means at peak season they will play matches twice a week. The success the team has received these past few years has been a result of a huge amount of time and commitment from the team. The girls train twice a week on the pitch and take part in regular strength and conditioning sessions in the performance gym. Despite the busy schedule the 1st XI squad is always up for a social, whether it is a day trip or a night out! 

The 1st XI have newly added a preseason trip to help the team reconnect, work together, and get to know some new faces, both on and off the pitch before the season starts. 

Previous years have seen:

  • 2017: Rotterdam, Netherlands 
  • 2018: Terrassa, Spain (just north of Barcelona)
