Competitive 11-a-side football at Trinity – contact Vlad on vmm29@cam.ac.uk if you’re interested specifically in 5-a-side – is made up of two teams. The 1st team is yet to re-attain the treble-winning heights it graced in 2010/11, winning the college league, cup, and Camford ‘super cup’ in the space of a few weeks, and memory of these halcyon days still runs strong, the captain and one of the vice-captains having arrived the following season (there is no evidence to suggest that they contributed directly to the side’s immediate relegation – Ed.). Trinity 1’s firm aim for the upcoming term will be promotion to the first division.

The 2nd team has enjoyed unprecedented success of late, earning back-to-back promotions, and will also be aiming for another this year (from the competitive division 4).

Training – for all players – will most probably be on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1 30 to 3 30 – but keep an eye on the mailing list for changes (email Chris if you want to be added). Tuesday’s session will be led by a B-licenced coach. In addition to these, there will be a weekly fitness session, at a time to be arranged. Ideally, everyone who wants to play regularly for a Trinity team should do their best to attend as many of these sessions as they are able; it will certainly be hard to hold down a place in the first team if you don’t make regular appearances at trainings.

Matches take place on weekends during the first two terms, varying from week to week, preceded the evening before by a ‘team pasta’. There will be regular social trips to the bowling alley (the captain being the owner of the dubious honour of having bowled for the university; unfortunately his plan to combine half-blues for bowling and pool into a whole blue, as a substitute for his inability to get into the university football team, has never come to fruition), as well as an end of season tour – recent destinations have included Split, Gdansk, and Barcelona.

 

And yes, you will get stash.
