The 3rd Team are still showing massive improvements in their 3rd year as a team...
EUWAFC 3rd Team
Our 3rd team competes in the BUCS Scottish 3A and Scottish Student Sport Cup.
In 2015, the club expanded to include a 3rd team.
Since then the team has risen ranks in the BUCS Scottish 3A league from 5th in 2015/16 to 2nd in 2018/19.
Meanwhile the league itself has also grown in numbers as other universities enter more women's teams.
The 2018/2019 season showed the potential of the team narrowly missing out on winning the league for the first time.
2018/2019- A brave and determined effort where we were knocked out by our own EUWAFC 1st team, who ended up going all the way to win the cup!
The squad looks forward to the 2019/20 season to see if they can catalyse on their previous success!
