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.

They currently compete in the second Scottish University league and play National League 2 at the weekend. This kind of success was the result of a huge amount of time and commitment from the team. The girls train twice a week on the pitch as well as taking part in regular strength and conditioning sessions. At peak season they will also play competitive hockey up to two times a week. Despite this busy schedule the 1st XI social turnout never wavers. 2017 saw the first Club preseason trip to Rotterdam with the squad.
