University wins Varsity for seventh year in a row


The University of Liverpool has taken the Varsity title for the seventh year in a row after battling it out last week with sports teams from Liverpool John Moores University.

The overall Varsity score was 89 – 63 with some tense moments across the three-day sports clash.

Particular highlights of this year’s tournament include the trampolining squad who took a win this year after losing out by only one point last year; and men’s indoor cricket who won their fixture after not being involved in Varsity for a number of years.

Both men’s football teams had excellent results against teams who normally play in higher divisions, with our 1st team fighting until the end for a 0-0 finish and our 2nd team romping to victory 4-0.

There was also great success in both handball and Jiu Jitsu who both overcame last year’s defeats to claim victory this year.

There were some nail-biting moments in a few games, not least in the men’s basketball where the team were pipped to the win in the last 30 seconds 67-70; and netball, which saw a tense win with a 42-41 scoreline.

Commenting on the win, Athletic Union President Megan Andrews, said: “Varsity this year was a brilliant event for Sport Liverpool, with us retaining our title of Varsity Champions for the seventh year in a row!  A brilliant way to end a very successful year of sport.”

Throughout the week our Athletic Union supported the Rainbow Laces campaign by wearing laces with every colour of the rainbow throughout the week at training and fixtures. The campaign aims to show support for the LGBTQ+ community and to demonstrate our zero tolerance policy towards intolerance.

Congratulations to all of the teams that took part – we hope all our athletes and supporters enjoyed the event.
