KUFC is one of the biggest and most competitive teams within Keele University. With 125 members, multiple matchdays and killer socials, there is something for everyone!
Based on values of passion, progression and commitment, we pride ourselves on being able to offer football for anyone, regardless of your experience level.
We have 5 squads in the club - 3 play in BUCS, and the other 2 compete in local leagues, focusing on developing the basics of their game. In this way, we have a system in which you can easily progress between the teams as you improve your ability. If you would like to stay in one of the development squads, that's fine too; we have members that join the club for its social aspects and general wellbeing. However, if competing is your motive, then our BUCS teams provide a competitive and serious environment to achieve your potential. We also have a futsal team that competes in BUCS.
The club is a tightly-knit brotherhood with evening socials and nights out following our Wednesday fixtures. These are a fantastic team bonding opportunity. We have 2 social secs that create themes for these nights, and we frequently join up with female clubs for these. Even in our most competitive teams, we encourage a culture of friendship and cooperation - joining Mens Football will guarantee that you always see someone you know on nights out, as well as seeing your friends around campus.
One of the major forces behind our first varsity event, Keith Harrison was a hugely influential part of the club. He sadly passed in 2015, with our sports park taking his name, in addition to our club retiring the number 6 shirt in his honour. The club completes a cycle ride to Paris at the end of each year to raise money for charity in his memory, raising over £1500 for MacMillan in 2019.
Each October, we hold trials for newcomers. In order to attend, see us at the sports fair at the start of semester one. We will go over some technical drills and then enter into a short game scenario, after which you will be approached by squad captains.
The 21/22 campaign was an incredibly successful season for the club with a 1-0 Varsity win in 11-a-side and an 8-6 Varsity win in Futsal. In addition to this, our 1st XI and 2nd XI were crowned champions of their BUCS leagues, with our Futsal team also securing promotion.
