Maggie Elstob

Athletic Union Officer


Hello, I’m Maggie and I am the Athletic Union Officer for the 2018/19 academic year. I am really looking forward to working with all the clubs over the next year and having another successful season for the AU. We have 78 teams competing for the university in BUCS, with many other individuals and teams competing locally and nationally. We currently sit 10th in BUCS and that is a position we are keen to retain in the coming year. We also have an expanding participation sport programme, with in excess of 4500 students involved on a regular basis through the Students’ Union.

My aims for this year include increasing the availability of breakfast food in the Sports Centre, expanding the access of students to the week’s fixtures to enable greater support, and assist in developing participation sport at Newcastle to cater for the ever growing number of students who want to be involved.

I am excited to see what our students can do this year in sport and hope to see this happen in a fun and friendly environment that facilitates strong performance and success.
