Varsity 2019 promised to be a great show of sporting ability and boy did it deliver! It was Team Staffs' turn to host this year and 15 strong Team Keele squads were ready to take on the challenge. Keele were hoping for a 10th consecutive win, 11th overall, and this was evident by the intense training leading up to the event. The competition took place from the 31st March - 3rd April, with the last day of competition being packed with fixtures. 

Varsity kicked off with the Keele Crusaders on Sunday 31st March who were taking on the Staffordshire Stallions at Sir Stanley Matthews Sports Centre. The team put up a great fight but unfortunately lost 25-9. On the 1st April the Men's Football team travelled to Newcastle Town Football Club for the second Varsity fixture. A nail biting game ended with one goal for each team at full time and Keele scoring the winning goal with only minutes left of extra time. Heading into day three of Varsity it was still all to play for with one win for each side. Women's Rugby gave Team Keele the lead with an impresive performance and a 17-12 win. Unfortunately due to some injuries from the Staffs team, the Men's Rugby Union fixture was cancelled. However the Keele side still fielded a team versus Newcastle Rugby Club. 

This meant Team Keele had secured 2 wins and Team Staffs 1 going into the last day of competition. Day 4 was packed with fixtures and did not disappoint. Check out the full list of results below:
