As the 2022-23 academic year comes to an end, so does the 2022-23 sporting season, which has been a very successful one for the UCFB sports teams.

No fewer than five of our teams have won their respective leagues, over sports including football, rugby, netball and basketball.

In football, our Etihad Women’s Second Team were crowned Tier Three league champions after a dramatic last-minute free kick.
