The University Staff Football Club organise games of 5-a-side football at lunchtimes and occassionally meet to play 11-a-side games. The group contains a mix of age and abilities and games are played in a friendly and competitive manner.

Five-a-side football

University staff football has evolved from a long tradition of lunchtime 5-a-side football and we continue to enjoy playing in a friendly yet competitive spirit. Games are now held across most weekdays and between players of a mixed standard.


Games are played during lunchtime hours and are organised by the following members of the group:

Monday 12:30-13:15- Jen Provis
Tuesday 12:30-13:15- Jon Jerrome
Thursday 12:30-13:15- James Veale
Friday 12:30-13:15- Giles Jordan

Game Selection

The organiser of each game sends an email to the mailing list the week before each game asking for interested players to sign-up. If demand exceeds the number of player spaces available, players outside the game line-up will be listed as a reserve and called upon in the event of withdrawals.


Games are played in the Sports Hall at the Centre for Sport, Exercise and Health which contains two 5-a-side football courts.


Games cost £2 per player which is paid on the day.

Eleven-a-side Football

We organise occasional eleven-a-side games of football at local venues against teams from other Universities and organisations. For more information, please contact Jon Jerrome


The Staff Football group is open to all staff members within the University as well as Postgraduate students who can sign up to the staff football mailing list.
