This week’s visitors to the Cinder Lane Stadium was Carterton Town Vets, new to the Hellenic League and competing in Division 1. It was clear to hear on their arrival that they would be an RAF side, due to them all sounding like our very own Kammy from “Upt North”!
Town Vets continue their Vets Cup campaign on Wednesday night when they welcome Carterton Town Vets to the Cinder Lane Stadium, the home of Fairford Town. This is the second match in Group A for both sides, who both lost their opening fixture and will be hoping to collect three points and keep their chances of qualifying for the knockout stages alive.
The Blues set out their stall this morning against Radley by working together as a team and backing each other up with every tackle. After having an early attempt scrambled off the goal line, Josh D took control of a busy goal mouth and buried the ball in the back of the net.
After another week without a fixture, Town Vets are back in action on Wednesday night when they travel to Clanfield FC to face Witney Royals Vets in the CEO Challenge Veterans Cup. The format of the competition sees four groups of four teams, each playing each other once, with the winners and runners-up of each group going onto the knock out quarterfinals.
After the tough midweek fixture against Thatcham Development, Town faced an unbeaten Wantage. We were keen to give a good account of ourselves and cause an upset.
Faringdon Town take on Wantage Town Dev at Tucker Park on Saturday (3 pm KO). New to the league this season Wantage have started well, with 3 wins from 3 in the league. Scoring eleven and conceding 3 in the process. Luke Ballard, Richie Claydon & Keiron Kerby are on 3 goals apiece in both league & cup. They managed 6 in their last outing against Clanfield 85 Dev. #comeonthedon
