We currently have 2 teams that play in the AOC ECFA English Colleges Leagues – Category 1 and Development League.

Our ECFA Category 1 squad competes withing the Category 1 league, which is the highest level in the English College league System. This is more of a high-performance driven environment, where players are constantly pushed to the next level of their game and competing against higher quality players.

Our Development League squad is made up of players who are looking to develop themselves and train without pressure. These are generally individuals who have a love for the game but aren’t looking for a career in football and play for pure enjoyment.

Alongside league games, there are also 3 Cup Competitions that our teams are involved in. Fixtures are played on a Wednesday.
