On a warm Wednesday evening at Fairford Town’s Cinder Lane Stadium, Town Vets welcomed Benson Lions for our final Hellenic Veterans Division One fixture of the season. Town knew they needed at least a draw to tie up the league title, whilst the visitors were hoping to claim points to lift themselves up the table.
So it’s the final fixture of the Veterans first season of Hellenic Veterans League football on Wednesday 18th April 2018, when they entertain Benson Lions at Fairford Town FC. The Vets require just a single point from the fixture to guarantee the league title and bring home the silverware. The two sides have tried to get this match underway on two previous occasions, only to be thwarted by the ‘Beast from the East’ on both occasions.
