The Rads had a great 2022-2023 season, just narrowly missing promotion in both their Saturday league and their BUCS league. In the Saturday league the Rads showed that they are a high scoring team and can definitely get balls in the goal. This can be seen from their 6-0 win against phoenix reading. They can also pull through in the gritty games (e.g. 3-2 win vs Leighton Buzzards). The BUCs league had a somewhat frustrating results for the Rads as they were dominant throughout the season beating competitive sides like the Birmingham 4s. However, their last game was a 3-3 draw to Loughborough 5s which meant they narrowly missed out on the promotion. The Rads also reached the final of the BUCs knockout by winning some tough matches.
At Varsity the tabs were most certainly shoed. Captain Clare Mcfall scored in the last minutes of the game allowing the Rads to come away with a 1-0 victory. Dressed as bananas the Rads then celebrated in true RADs style and took the Cambridge night life by storm.
Off the pitch the Rads put in some great performances on the social side. Their dressing up capabilities are unbeatable and their parkend turnout is high. The Rads and are friendly, welcoming and social team which combines a fun and thriving social scene with high quality, cohesive hockey. It is exciting to see what the next season will bring.
