September 2024 Competitive Team Trials

Each September we run a series of trials during Welcome Week to recruit new players for each of our four competitive teams. We also run a shorter set of trials in January for those who missed the September trials or who are only joining the university in Semester 2.

Recreational Football

Our recreational football programme is the largest in Scotland, with over 12 teams and 100 players signing up in 2023/24. Rec football is open to all players of all abilities, and is a great way to relax, socialise and play a bit of football!

SWFL East Edi Uni Thistle

Edi Uni Thistle, created as part of our partnership with Boroughmuir Thistle FC, is entered into SWFL East and plays teams from all over East Scotland every Sunday. We are always keen to hear from new players, and we are not limited to university students.

September 2024 Competitive Trials

Each year we run September trials to recruit new players for our four competitive teams. All trialists who sign up will be invited to trial sessions at Peffermill where our coaches and captains will select players to join our teams. 


Our September 2024 Trials will take place during Welcome Week (9th-14th September 2024) at Peffermill Playing Fields. For now, further information is TBC - keep checking this page for updates, or follow our Instagram (@EUWAFC) to be the first to know about any further information!​

Please contact us either via email ( or DM us on Instagram if you have any questions about trials.

Recreational Football

Our Recreational Football programme is open to all players of all abilities. Rec football is on every Saturday morning at Peffermill playing fields, and involves 5-aside matches in an intramural league. 

Recreational football is perfect for people looking for casual football, people looking to make friends, people who are new to football or anyone else who fancies a kickabout on a Saturday morning. Members of our competitive teams often get involved for an extra kickabout!

Playing rec football is also a great pathway for those who were unsuccessful during trials who still wish to get into a competitive squad. In the past, rec players have re-trialled and ended up in our fourth, third and second teams.

Edinburgh Uni Thistle

Edi Uni Thistle was formed in conjunction with Boroughmuir Thistle FC as part of our partnership, and is therefore a development squad. We compete in SWFL East and play teams all over East Scotland every Sunday. 

Many of our competitive team members get involved with Edi Uni Thistle as a way to develop, improve, play with members from other University teams and get in more football. Edi Uni Thistle has dedicated trainings separate from the University squads, and has players from university teams, alumni, and players unaffiliated with the University.

We are always on the lookout for more players to add to our squad. For more information on Edi Uni Thistle, please DM our Instagram (@ediunithistle) or email us ( and we'll put you in touch with the right people.
