DMUFC Weekly Blog: November Week three

By Luke Williamson

Welcome back to the weekly DMUFC blog, where we have the week’s footballing round-up as well as an update on the club’s Movember fundraising efforts.

Three of the four DMUFC teams were in action this week, however it was a somewhat disappointing set of results for the club.

For the second week in a row, the First team were victorious over Oxford Brookes’ Firsts, this time winning 3-2 away from home in the league, building on the 4-0 win the week prior.

The Second Team couldn’t build on last Monday’s cup success as they fell to Nottingham Trent Fourths at home also in league competition, losing 4-2.

The DMUFC Third team also tasted defeat last Wednesday when they suffered a 3-1 defeat at Birmingham City Firsts in cup competition.

The club has continued it’s push towards it’s Movember targets in the last week, with more money being added to the total raised so far.

As we get to the business end of the month, it is important to remind everyone of why we are raising money.

Men’s Health is important to us all at DMUFC and we are extremely grateful with what has been raised to improve the treatment and raise awareness of prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health and suicide prevention amongst men.

We are very close to raising £2,000 and, all throughout this week, members of DMUFC will be around campus with buckets ready to collect any small donation you want to give to help raise our total even more for such a worthwhile cause.

As well as collections around campus, this Saturday also sees DMUFC take on DMURFC in a hotly contested darts night at the Students’ Union building.

Both committees will go head to head in pursuit of bragging rights but more importantly to raise more money for both team’s Movember collections.

Tickets are still available at with all proceeds going towards Movember.

This week also sees the return of the I’m A Celebrity Social event, tomorrow night.

Dress code this week is red shorts and red socks, as the celebrities wear in the camp, with your name and phone number written across the back of your t-shirt or jacket.

As always, the meeting place is The Locker Room Sports Bar at 7.45pm, so don’t be late.

Back on the pitch, only two teams are in action tomorrow (WED,NOV20), with the First Team travelling to Lincoln Seconds for a 1pm kick-off while DMUFC Seconds are at home to Loughborough Seconds at Beaumont Park, with the game getting underway at 3pm.
