WELCOME TO THE ASTON SHARKS!
Who are the Aston Sharks?
The Sharks are Aston University's Womens Football Team! We are the current BCFA Female University Cup Champions, Varsity Champions, and FA People's Cup University Female Champions for 2019. We are also the Most Improved Club on campus for 2019 and we would love for you to join us, whatever your ability. We train weekly, on Monday's, Tuesday's and Thursdays.
- Monday - 7pm-8pm on the Gosta Green Pitches on campus.
- Tuesdays - 6pm-7pm in the Sir Doug Ellis Woodcock Sports Centre & Recreation Centre, in Hall 2.
- Thursdays - 7pm-8pm on the ASV Pitch on campus.
Don't be daunted! Training is fun, and we are welcoming of all abilities, whether you have played from a young age, or never kicked a ball in your life. On a Tuesday, training in the sports centre is fitness based. We rotate the sessions every week, from indoor football, to a fitness session. This is a great way to improve your fitness for matches, and just in general.
We currently have one 11-a-side team, but we also participate in 5-a-side, and 7-a-side games and tournaments through-out the year, where we compete with other teams from the Midlands; and all around the country, for example; the FA People's Cup.
Playing (£20.00): Our playing membership allows you to attend training and gives you the opportunity to play in our regular fixtures. You also get all the benefits of a social membership!
Social (£10.00): Our social membership gives you access to all the social events.

On a Wednesday, everybody has finished university by 1pm, and this gives us the opportunity to have games in the afternoon. They aren't every week as we do not compete in the BUCS League, but we do have friendlies within the team and with the local universities at the REC Centre. Also, we are currently looking into participating in a social weekday 5-a-side football league, and we take part in the BCFA Female University Cup; this tournament is held on a weekend. Not only this, but we also participate in the FA People's Cup which is a national event, the rounds of this cup are held on weekends also.
You don't have to play, as we also offer a social membership as mentioned above! You don't want to miss out on our weekly socials. All the clubs at Aston host 'sesh' and other event's every other Wednesday evening from 8pm. As a team, we also do visits on a Thursday night to The Nightingale Club, after training. This is a great way of meeting new people, whilst having fun, and becoming part of the Shark's Family. We also arrange lots of other socials and events through-out the year, including non-alcohol related events:
- Christmas dinner
- Ghetto Golf.
- Laser Tag.
- Bar Crawls.
- AU Ball.
- SU Award's Evening.
- Themed nights out.
And many more to be announced through-out the year!
We are currenty in talks to plan a tour for this year! Detail's to be announced soon!
