Mens Blues

2019-2020 Season – East Leagues Premier A

  • Captain: Ed Tyler
  • Vice-Captain: Ed Sides
  • Coach: Charlie Bannister

In 2018/19 the Light Blues were led by Sean Gilmore with Ed Sides as his vice-captain. They enjoyed a successful season, narrowly missing out on promotion in East Prem A, convincingly winning the BUCS South Prem B and regaining the Varsity trophy, winning 3-2 courtesy of a cracking finish from Thomas Jackson. Having narrowly missed out on promotion to the National Leagues in recent years, in 2019/20 the Blues will be looking to challenge for the title and retain the Varsity trophy. Although a large proportion of the squad will remain in Cambridge for the upcoming season, captain Ed Tyler will be hoping to bolster his team with new fresher talent…

“With a strong presence of returning Blues, and an experienced coach in Charlie Bannister, our side will no doubt have the ability to challenge for every competition we enter with the side targeting promotion to the National League as well as retaining the varsity trophy”. – Ed Tyler

CUHC entered a men’s team into the BUCS competition for the first time in 2011/12, winning Midlands 4C as well as the Midlands Cup. Due to the academic commitments of players on Wednesday afternoons, BUCS has always been a challenge for CUHC. However, the Blues now find themselves in a suitable league (Premier South) and will be hoping to continue their rise through the newly organised BUCS structure.
