Return of Geology FC - Geology Collieries FC has rejoined the intramural league! This will run 10, 12 or 2 o'clock kick offs on saturdays or sundays at the playing fields in oadby. We'll be using spare old bar crawl t-shirts as kits to save money for you and to minimise waste. - there are two games left this season but that shouldn't stop you getting involved - it'll be back next year too. All levels of ability welcome.
For those that are interested in playing, please join the group chat below. PCSB membership will be required but there shouldn't be any further costs - https://chat.whatsapp.com/GU5feVmvqhBGuT22mWBH0B

Who we are?
The Peter Colley Sylvester Bradley (PCSB) Geology Society was founded over 50 years ago and is one of the most active and dedicated, course-linked, student-led societies at University of Leicester
Historically membership has been over 200 members, we welcome undergraduates, postgraduates, staff and alumni to all our events.
We are the link between the department, the union and you.
What we do?
Monday Night Talks: Regular talks (usually at 5pm) from industry, researchers, visiting lecturers and PhD students. Delivered at a suitable level for all, and followed by a trip to the pub, these are the perfect opportunity to learn about active research, modern innovations in the field and career opportunities in industry. It's also a great way to get social and make connections.
Social Life: Our events include
- Red T-Shirt Bar Crawl
- Geology Collieries FC weekend football and Social Nights
- Inter-Science Bar Crawl
- Christmas Party
- Annual Geology Ball (has been held at the King Power, Tigers' Stadium and the city rooms in the past
Fieldtrips: We usually offer a field trip for each semester, from local day trips to overnight stays further abroad. The cost of these trips is kept as low as possible to make them available for all. More details are to come soon, the best way to keep up with this is by joining our facebook group https://www.facebook.com/groups/PCSBgeology
A limited tickets field trip is in the works for the summer - watch this space and our socials.
Hope to see you all in person soon
