CSUFC have set the bar high for the other uni clubs, having already kicked off their 2022 season with a spectacular start on Sunday the 3rd of April. The Stags and Vixen came away with three wins from their second-grade men’s side and first and second-grade ladies teams.

This year, the biggest club on campus will host 115 players, in three women’s and four men’s teams across the Bathurst District Football Competition. 

In his first year as CSUFC president, James Worthington is looking forward to completing a full season of football, uninterrupted.

“My first two seasons at the club were a bit weird because of covid, so I’m excited to see what a proper full year of the club looks and seeing what results we can put together at the end of the season”, said Worthington.

Worthington’s presidency isn’t the only change that the 2022 season has brought for the club. CSUFC players can be seen sporting a brand-new look thanks to their revitalised jerseys, featuring a red sash. The club has also picked up a new sponsor in CrossFit 2795, where players attend club-wide fitness bootcamps to increase the CSUFC’s ‘Together as One’ atmosphere.

Whilst excited for football to be back, what Worthington is most looking forward to is the packed calendar of social events the club has planned for 2022.

“Making sure we keep strong with the social aspects of the club is the main change I want to make from last year, as most of our later events got cancelled due to covid’’, shared Worthington.

CSUFC’s long list of club events began on  Friday April 22nd at the club’s season launch event. Hosted by the Oxford Hotel, season launch gave new players the opportunity to meet club members and see what CSUFC all is about. 

If you’re interested in getting involved with CSUFC, spectating is made easy being the only club that plays on Sundays. CSUFC plays every Sunday at Proctor Park (near The Vic) with games running all day from 9am to 3pm. 

The Club also offers enticing social memberships, valued at $50 which includes a club polo, entry to all club events and access to all club sponsorship deals. These deals come just in time for discounted pizzas at Church Bar when the venue is set to re-open in the coming weeks.
