The men’s football 1st XI beat Kings 2-1 to start their season in the best way. A brilliant solo goal from Sam Smith gave the team the lead, before a Kings penalty made it 1-1 at the break. A last minute winner from Hearn earned Johns their 3 points, and Abhik Vinod was Man of the Match. See the noticeboard for a full match report. The next match is in two weeks against Emma I in the first round of Cuppers.

A great team effort helped the John’s and King’s women’s football team to beat Pembroke 2s 10-1 in their first match of the season. A goal each from Phoebe and Rosanna, two from Eva, and hat-tricks from Isabel and Kath led to a decisive win. Kath was Woman of the Match for her fabulous three goals and for also tracking brilliantly to defend. The next training is 3pm Friday 19th on John’s pitches and beginners are encouraged to attend as they are building up a team! The next match is this weekend against Wolfson/ Darwin. Message Charly Pressdee or Phoebe Harris for more details.

University Societies Opportunity

Nominations are sought for membership of the Technical Committee of the Societies Syndicate.

The Technical Committee meets twice a term and considers applications for financial support from Clubs and Societies. The Junior Proctor chairs the Committee. Membership includes twelve members of the University in statu pupillari, one appointed by each of twelve societies.

The person nominated by your society should, ideally, have some knowledge of the workings of clubs and societies, and particularly their financial arrangements, but neither is essential. The junior members on the Committee do not represent their society as such, but ensure that the composition of the Committee reflects the range of societies eligible for financial assistance from the Syndicate, and members generally find their year’s service enjoyable and interesting.

The first of next year’s meetings is due to take place on 30 October 2018. We therefore ask that nominations be sent to by Monday 8 October 2018.


This is an opportunity for your members to gain experience of serving on a University committee, whilst also playing a useful role supporting the work of student clubs and societies.

Basketball for beginners


Women and non-binary students who are interested in playing basketball in a fun, low pressure environment – this is for you. All skill levels welcome!
Email Annie Lyons (afl36) if you want to know more

A note from the University Basketball team:

College basketball offers the opportunity to play sport in a low pressure, sociable environment. Whether you’ve never touched a basketball before in your life, or you’ve played for years, we want to provide a space where you can come down, learn some new skills and meet some great women and non-binary people.

A new system of College league competition has been established for the 2018-19 season, which will provide opportunities for player development in the Michaelmas term, and a 3×3 or 5×5 league in Lent term (this will depend on player numbers).

We will be running training sessions every Saturday of Michaelmas term from 9:45-11am at the Kelsey Kerridge Sports Centre, coached by players from the University Women’s teams. These are open to all women + non-binary students in Cambridge and we would like to encourage people who have never played before to come and give it a try. The sessions will have a small fee to cover the court rental, payable on site per session. We encourage all those coming down to play regularly to look into funding available in your college to support participation in sport.
