Positive DMU Lions hunt Varsity glory

By Rian Fearnehough

The DMU Lions are preparing for the Varsity challenge against the University of Leicester as they look to put the wrongs of the season right this Sunday(MARCH27).

The Lions had a disappointing end to the season after issues outside the control of the players caused the perfect season to be tarnished with the efforts of the players being forgotten.

Coach David Franklin said: “Being frustrated is pointless as it achieves nothing and often makes things worse.

“The Lions are trying to focus on the next game and put the negatives in the past and try to remain positive.”

The Lions are still working hard to show how good the team is and how much they have improved over the course of the season.

A victory in Varsity would be a positive way to end the season that has been marred by problems, despite the performances on the pitch being very good throughout.  

UOL are yet to lose in the Varsity game to the DMU side in the nine times the fixture has been played, which gives the game even more importance as the Lions look to stop the tenth win in a row.

Coach Franklin added: ”The Lions recently had a scrimmage with Coventry who are a division above and we held our own despite having only 16 players.”

Coventry Jets are in the same division as the UOL, giving the Lions even more confidence of being able to win Varsity for the first time.

The Lions have remained positive throughout the season and continue to do so, giving them a huge chance to make history and show how good they are.

The fixture will take place at Beaumont Park on Sunday(MARCH27) at 1pm with the university offering free travel to the fixture, urging people to come down and enjoy a great afternoon of sport.
