Congratulations to both the Men’s Rugby Union (pictured) and Football 1st teams, who carry on their unbeaten streaks for the year, Union taking all the points available for each match. Well done to Men’s Basketball as well who took their second win of the year away in Lampeter this week in monumental fashion, weeks of near misses culminating in a dominant 25-101 win. Speaking to The Sports Show on Bay Radio earlier in the week, the team’s very own Bruce Wight spoke about his ambition for the team this year:

“I’m just trying to make Basketball something this year [in Aberystwyth]. After last year, our only noble win was that we won Varsity and I want people be able to say ‘Basketball came from nothing to something, that’s a hell of a job’.”

Elsewhere, DIGS fell foul of the weather and matches have been called off as Storms Abigail and Barney have passed over. Three league games took place mid-week, with results below:


FC Beaver 1 – 3 Inter YourNan (Bundesliga)
AC ALSOM 1 – 4 Ivory Toast (Premier League)
AFC Gwatch 1 – 1 Aberzaijan (La Liga)

Toast turned the tables on AC ALSOM by dolling out the same scoreline that they lost by in the Aber Town Cup earlier in this campaign, and Gwatch salvaged a point from their meeting with Aberzaijan by means of a very late equaliser.
