It has become an annual event that brings together staff and students.

And this year's indoor football match between members of University staff and the Nigerian Society proved one to remember.

With the staff team taking an early lead, it looked like to was all over for the Nigerian squad as they went down 1-5.

But, with substitutes in the bag, and an increasingly weary staff time finding age catching up with them, the international squad came back and went on to win the match 11-8.
