Students take home cup in Student vs Staff Football Match

The student team were victorious over staff in the annual charity football match.

Students celebrated a 4-0 win against staff at the annual Students vs Staff Charity Football Match on Friday the 25th of May. 

It was their first win in three years and tensions were high throughout the match, as many of the teams goals were scored towards the end. 

The game took place at Fratton Park and was held to raise money for Brain Tumour Research and Pompey in the Community.

Students and staff raised £11,500 for the two charities, beating last year’s total of £7,554.

VP Sports Marcus Campopiano and Students' Union President James Thompson were among those in the student team.

Students' Union President, James Thompson, said: “I’m ecstatic that we got a win and so proud with how everyone played. The team this year has gelled together brilliantly and it’s been a pleasure to be a part of it.”

Pompey in the Community are an independent charity affiliated to Portsmouth Football Club, which delivers educational programmes to over 8,000 people a year.

The money raised for Brain Tumour Research will go towards the network of dedicated Centre of Excellence, including the one at the University of Portsmouth.
