All of us at Portergate Property Management, especially everyone at Friargate Court, wish to extend warm congratulations to the men’s UCLan 2s team who clinched the title on Thursday 26 February 2020, with 3 games still to go, after a comprehensive 4-0 win over Uni of Manchester 3s.
All the players, resplendent in their Friargate Court sponsored kits, gave their all in the first half. It was a display which saw off the opponents with a hat-trick for Wilson & a goal for Bradshaw. Such was the dominance, UCLan 2s had the luxury of being able to take their foot off the gas in the second half, ensuring that no-one picked up any unnecessary injuries. It would have been easy to be complacent, having beaten the same opponents 6-0 earlier in the season, but they all produced a thoroughly professional exhibition, despite the testing conditions.
The next challenge is to avoid defeat in the next 3 games, then they would go the whole season unbeaten. This would mirror the feat of the original invincibles, the Preston North End side of 1888-89.
