Beckett's top teams win silverware at the Northern Conference Cup Finals day in Manchester
Northern Conference Cup Finals
Several of Beckett's top teams travelled over to Manchester to compete in a historic Northern Conference Cup finals day.
The BUCS Northern Conference Cup Finals were hosted by Manchester Metropolitan University and the University of Manchester which saw a number of Northern universities battle it out for silverware.
Women's Hockey 2's crowned champions
Beckett's women's Hockey 2nd team capped off another stellar year for the club by winning their Northern Conference Cup Final in Manchester.
The team defeated Durham 2-1 in a closely fought encounter to claim yet more silverware for the Hockey club and continue the long line of success for the club.
Tennis at the double for National Conference Cup title victories
There was another victory for a Leeds Beckett Women's 2nd team in the Tennis as they defeated Durham 8-2 to be crowned champions in Manchester.
Meanwhile their male 4th team counterparts were also crowned champions as they defeated Northumbria's 1st team 8-4 to cap off another excellent season for Tennis.
Elsewhere, Beckett's Men's 2nd team were victorious over Nottingham in their BUCS Trophy match, winning 8-0 to book their place in the semi-finals of the Tennis Trophy competition.
Agonising Northern Conference Cup defeats for Women's Hockey 3rd's and Badminton's Men
There were agonising defeats for Hockey's Women's 3rd team and Men's Badminton 1st's in Manchester - both overcoming adversity.
In the Hockey, Beckett's women competed admirably against rivals University of Leeds after winning their semi-final the night before their big final match. Beckett displayed a never say die attitude which saw them level 1-1 at full time, but the ladies succumb to a 4-1 lose on flicks to narrowly miss out on winning the cup.
Meanwhile, Beckett's Badminton looked to be down and out when they went 4-0 down to Liverpool in their final, but a late surge from Beckett saw the true heart and desire of the men who managed to claw back the contest to 4-3 setting up a nervy finish for both teams. It was too little too late, however, for Beckett who left themselves too much work to do, losing out agonisingly 5-3 in a heroic effort.
Beckett's cup runs continue
