Hartpury’s women’s BUCS 1st XV were the standout performers this week as they rolled over visitors Aberystwyth 1st team 126-0.

In a week which saw no Hartpury teams lose, the girls powered to victory to maintain their top spot advantage in the BUCS Western 2B league – the win putting them 12 points clear of their closest rivals.

Hartpury’s university 1st football team welcomed League Two Exeter City’s Under-21 side for a friendly as they look to round off their BUCS Premier South campaign next week. Fielding several first team players, including former Premiership man Clinton Morrison, Exeter were favourites on paper but were beaten by their university counterparts as goals from Scott Wilson, Joe White and Elliot Keightley secured a 3-1 win.
