A massive congratulations to all our LSE sports teams who have had an outstanding season with leagues won and promotions gained across the board.

Captained by Chris Anguelov, the Mens 1st Tennis Team triumphed in the Premier BUCS League and BUCS Championships.

We beat Loughborough away in the last 16, 4-2 - one of the strongest teams in the UK - and lost narrowly 4-2 to Bath, who at the time were ranked 1 in UK!
“Key players throughout the year include Selina Parmar (Club Captain), Jack Ashfield (Club Secretary) who was very much a key driving force in the Men’s squad, Dimo Anguelov (Coach), Chris Anguelov (Mens Captain) who finished four years undefeated, and Asher Gilani (Vice-Captain).”

Charlie said: “With a nail biter of a final game against Imperial we completed an unprecedented 100% win record, winning 6 out of 6 games with a goal difference of 23!

The Mens 2nd Tennis Team won BUCS 2B and made the Final of the Cup captained by Asher Gilani. Asher said: “We’ve improved incredible amounts over the season beating Imperial, who had smashed us a few months earlier in the corresponding home fixture, on the last day. Individually, the boys won against the exact same opponents who had previously destroyed them too. This was the most satisfying part of the season for the whole Mens Squad due to their sustained hard work and training, rather than just being the best team from the start. We made the final of the cup too, although lost to University of East London, who were just too good for our seconds. Their whole team were on sports scholarships and had 3 world-ranked players!”

Our outstanding moment was the cup final win, with players sent off and 4 penalties in the game. There have been two trophies in the LSEFC in the past two years and they both belong to LSE 6s. Fact.”
