EUWAFC 2nd Team
Now into their 7th season, the 2nd team have risen up through the leagues and established themselves as one of the best teams in Scotland.
Founded in 2013, the University of Edinburgh 2nd team has worked up the leagues and now competes in the Scottish division 1A - The top division in Scotland.
The 19/20 season saw the 2nd team finish third in the league securing their place once again in the Scottish 1A.
The 19/20 season was tough for the 2nd team, but they faced the challenge and secured some impressive wins in the Scottish 1A.
The 2015/16 season saw them facing new challenges in a harder league facing new opponents. This didn't faze them however as they finished the season completely unbeaten and only drawing 2 games, sealing the Division 2A title comfortably in their first season in the league.
Edinburgh 2nd Team also went on to win the Conference Cup Final - securing the historic double that season.
