Match of the Day

Match of the Day society welcomes anyone interested to come and watch MOTD with us, as well as other televised football such as the Champions League and FA Cup! We essentially just meet up and watch as well as exchange some quality football chat. In addition to this we are running a fantasy football league and plan to introduce more activities throughout the year such as 5-a-side kickabouts and booking the big screen at the Riley auditorium for some matches.

If you want more information, contact Sam Chapman (sc993 [at] cam [dot] ac [dot] uk).

Mixed Lacrosse

About:

Clare mixed lacrosse (Clax) is one of the most popular college sports. There’s always a fun and relaxed atmosphere and it’s a good way to get to know people in college from different year groups. It’s a great sport to try if you’re looking to take up something new, most of the team had never held a lacrosse stick before joining and beginners are welcome to come along and give lax a go at any point during the season.

The main aim of Clax is to try and catch a few balls, score the occasional goal and of course intimidate the other colleges with our great cheat, strong team spirit and bright yellow stash. We’re currently in Division 1 and play at weekends during Michaelmas and Lent terms. Games are usually on Saturday mornings (sometimes Sundays), followed by a team trip to brunch. Cuppers is an all-day tournament at the end of Lent term and is a super fun day where we play loads of other teams – last year we made it through to the semi-finals. Our socials are held once a term and are rumoured in college to be better than the may ball…

Football – Men’s

About:

Clare College has two men’s football teams: the Firsts and the Thirds (the disappearance of the Seconds has gone down in Clare folklore). The First team are currently in Division 3, but will be aiming for a swift return to the 2nd division. Most players have some Sunday league experience, but it is not essential. The Thirds are slightly more casual; if you’re free to play, you should be able to get a match. Both teams generally play once a week, at the weekends, through Michaelmas Term and Lent Term. Home matches are at Clare’s own pitches, which truly are the best in Cambridge (Cambridge United train there). The Firsts will also be training once a week on astroturf.

President:

Ollie Lerway: ol259 [at] cam [dot] ac [dot] uk

Freshers Events:

We’ll be having a training session with practice match in Freshers’ week, to which everybody is welcome. In conjunction with this, or perhaps on a different day, there is also the possibility of a mini round-robin tournament involving Clare Alumni.
