Leicester Medics Women's Football Club
Leicester Medics Women's Football Club (LMWFC)
**Now also welcoming girls from Associated Healthcare Specialty courses such as Nursing, ODPs and Midwives!**
Leicester Medics Women’s Football Club are a friendly and sociable club who welcome all girls no matter what your football ability. Women’s Football is a very popular choice for medics, for both its social and fitness aspects. We love to meet to play sport and have fun together and would love for you to join us this year!
We train every Friday 7-8pm at the Manor Road Astro Turf in Oadby (5 minute walk from Oadby Halls, see map below), with our sessions made up of a quick warm-up, skills practice and often a friendly match. We organise matches against other teams within the University, local Medical Schools such as Warwick and Nottingham, and take part in a regional tournament with other medical schools in the Midlands.
Our biggest event of the year is the NAMS (National Association of Medical Schools) tournament where we travel to a city together and play in a tournament against many of the UK Medical Schools. The weekend in late March is a great opportunity to see a new city, meet lots of new people and have a great time playing football, as well as have two amazing nights out as a team.
Throughout the year we hold socials and academic help sessions to create a real team spirit between all members of the club. The club is made up of girls from Years 1-5, so is a great way to make friends across all the year groups in a low pressure and fun environment. In the past year we have had a number of socials including a Christmas meal, 'bring a food' social and 'FootBall', our end of year celebration. We're always there to support each other as well as have fun playing football. We also have alumni members who are newly graduated doctors!
If you want to meet lovely new friends, get fit and have a laugh, please visit us on Sports Night, like our Facebook page, follow us on instagram and come along to any training session! Feel free to contact the Captain or Vice Captains (through our facebook page) for more information.
