Thursday Night football
We are now outdoors for the summer at the University of Sussex Falmer Sports Complex. (MAP LINK). There's on site parking, whilst trains stop at Falmer and there is a 25 bus stop at the bottom of Pavilion Road.
There are two regular sessions every Thursday evening, back-to-back: 6-7pm PROS (pretty physical and competitive) and 7-8pm VIRGINS (gentler but still with a competitive edge). Both sessions are mixed by gender (LGBT+friends) and if unsure of ability come to a virgins session first. Cost is £3/session, or £5 for both.
The surface is a short-pile astroturf so please wear trainers or (better still) invest in astroturf shoes. There are changing facilities in the main pavilion. Try to arrive 15mins before, to get changed and be ready to start promptly. But it doesn't matter if you are late, you can just join in.
Joining a new group can be daunting, but most people who come love it and become a regular. We are friendly and welcoming, and please do contact me beforehand if you need any help joining in.

BLAGSS Men win Soho FvH Tournament
The BLAGSS men's team won the Soho FC winter 9-aside tournament on Saturday, held in aid of Football v Homophobia. In the group stage the boys lost, won and drew one game each; in the knockouts we won the quarter final 2-0 and won both the semi and final games on penalties each time! Much champagne was drunk to rounds of "champione, champione!" back at the hosts bar Rupert Street. This was our second ever piece of silverware, first as outright winners, and is a culmination of 5 years hard work getting football up and running.
