Our major outdoor facility is commonly known as Wyncote and is in the Allerton area. It has 9 grass soccer, three rugby union, one rugbby league, one lacrosse and two sand dressed floodlit full size astros. In addition we have a floodlit 3G training pitch. Its correct name is Geoffrey Hughes Memorial Ground and was donated to the University in 1922 by the Hughes family in memory of their son Geoffrey who was killed in action in August 1918 whilst serving with the Grenadier Guards.
