About the Club
LUUWAFC is about playing the sport we love, striving for success, and having a lot of fun along the way! We welcome players of all abilities and endeavor to give everyone time on the pitch. We are currently made up of three teams who all play on a Wednesday in their respective BUCS league.
Our 1st team will be starting in the Northern 1A League this season fighting for promotion to the Northern Premier League after winning the league in the 2015/16 season! Our first team done the double and won the BUCS Cup meaning that our 1st Team were the most successful team in the whole of the University of Leeds finishing with 60 BUCS points!! Both our 2nd and 3rd team will be continuing in their previous leagues Northern 3B and 4B respectively. Apart from football, we also have a Futsal team competing in the Northern 1A!
The website details for 2016/17 will be updated by the new Club Captain (Shona Macleod) when the details are all confirmed! This should all be organised and in place during summer, however the details below will give you an indication of what to expect.
Below is the training times for this year.
Mondays: 5-6:30pm at Weetwood 3G pitch (All teams)
Tuesdays: 7-9pm at Weetwood 5-a-side pitches (3rd Team)
Tuesdays: 8:30-10pm at Weetwood 3G (1st and 2nd team)
Tuesdays: 4-5pm at The Edge Sports Hall 1b
For some this is arguably the most important part of playing a sport at uni! Socials happen every Wednesday (sports night), expect fancy dress, drinking games and most importantly plenty of banter. LUUWAFC is an extremely sociable and friendly club, mainly due to attendance at socials where all three teams can meet and dance the night away.
For one week a year the club heads abroad for TOUR which was Salou last year! This a week full of drinking, nights out, games, sun, sea and a small amount of football. This is one of the events on the LUUWAFC calendar that is not to be missed!
Two weeks before the start of term we begin our pre-season training. This is a perfect opportunity to boost fitness levels after a summer slump and refine technique before the start of the season. FRESHERS are welcome and encouraged to attend pre-season, if you contact our club captain Shona she will provide you with all the information you need!
Pre-season training times will be released during summer.
Trial times this year are yet to be finalised, however they will take place at Weetwood North (LS16 5AU) on Saturday 24th September 16. The cost this year is £5, which will include a free burger/hot dog at our BBQ at The Original Oak pub where we will all head to after trials are finish. We hold trials merely for seeing everyone's level of play and assign them to the appropriate team, we do not turn anyone away.
