Their commitment is testament to the pride they demonstrate each week when they pull on a Bucks jersey. I’d also like to thank the Students’ Union Students’ Activities team and all the volunteers who worked so hard to make the event such a tremendous success. We’re already looking forward to Varsity 2017.”
