The first team also play in the BUCS pinnacle league - BUCS Premier South and the club won the BUCS National Championships for the first time in their history in 2016/2017.

The reserve side (2nd team) were champions of The Welsh Football League Reserve East Division in the past two seasons; they also compete in BUCS Western 1A and are ranked as the best 2nd team in the UK. 

The Youth team (U19s) play in the Dafabet Welsh Premier League and also represent the university in BUCS as the 3rd team in Western 3B.
