Coming off the back of a hugely successful season last year, KCLFC are looking to win Varsity Football for a 2nd year in a row. So far this season, the team has added some fresh talent and looks a formidable outfit: We’re currently top of our Wednesday and Saturday leagues, and are progressing well in the LUSL Cup. Under the steady leadership of Coach Alan Sellers and Captain Edoardo Latini, we’re confident in our ability to deliver another Varsity win for KCL. London is red!
With the club having the largest intake of new people this year than ever before, it’s no doubt that KCLWFC has gone from strength to strength this season under new captain Ella Allibone. We have remained undefeated in the LUSL League and are currently second in BUCS. The team has been working weekly on their fitness and new team tactics under the guidance of our new coach Tom Mayor. This year we are more ready than ever to smash Varsity!
We are a team fresh from promotion in our BUCS league and although we've lost a lot of big players this season, they've all been replaced with a strong selection of new recruits. We play fast football and move the ball up the pitch in as few passes as possible. We press all over the pitch and don't like giving the other team a chance to play. We've had some great success over the last two years, winning two LUSL leagues, two LUSL cups and winning a BUCS league title. This year we've still got it all to play for where we're currently sat at top of our LUSL league unbeaten and in the quarterfinals of LUSL cup.
With Varsity looming we're aiming to put the penalty shootout loss of last year behind us, and all the lads are keen to show what we can do and put on a great show for all the supporters that bring themselves along to watch. With some great quality up top in our team, be sure to expect some goals and some great football.
UCL are turning up to Varsity in style, with 2/3 of the squad joining this season; we are ready to shock King's with our fresh new talent. Led by the incredible Captain duo of Lizzy Day and Liz Mulvaney, the UCL team is sure to provide us with entertainment on the day. With crippling strength from back to front, clean sheets are a common occurrence for the defence. Their job is made easy by the dream midfield, constantly running rings round their opponents and providing game changing deliveries through to our rapid top two who complete elite play with absolute 'worldies'.
Unbeaten by King's in the past three years, and with solid results throughout this season's BUCS and LUSL games, this year's squad is determined to keep up the winning streak. Supported by their long-standing coach Kaveh Fatemian, his unrivaled ability to push a squad to new extremes will be evident in their performance in March. Can UCL lift the trophy 4 years in a row?
