Football

Leeds Beckett Men’s Football Club comprises four teams, all representing the University in the British Universities and Colleges (BUCS) Competitions. They currently hold a Silver Club Mark.

The Club is staff led and student-run with the aim of providing a high level of competitive representative football for players, whilst providing opportunities for the development of coaching, management, leadership and administration skills for the members.

The Club has an invite-only pre-season programme in September, which is supported by a lengthy trials process which generally attracts 500 new players. 70 players will be invited to join the Club in preparation for the Leeds Varsity on the first Wednesday in October and prior to the start of the season.

On Wednesday 25th September there will be a Fresher Fair at Headingley Campus, where you will be able to sign up to Football trials. All prospective players are advised to make contact with the club and sign up by 4pm on 25th September, as trials will begin on Thursday 26th September. Due to the volume of trialists, we are unable to accommodate late attendees.
