After a 5 week festive and new year break, Town Vets were back in action last night to get their promotion challenge up and running again. This weeks opponents were Goring Utd Old Boys who Town dispatched 5-1 at home earlier in the season but whom Town were not going to be complacent of.
So how best to describe this fixture? Long journey, horrible playing conditions, hard-working, three points, top of the league!
Town Vets made it 10 unbeaten since the opening game of the season, when they defeated promotion challengers Oxford City A 2-1 at Abingdon Town’s Culham Road ground last night, in the Uhlsport Hellenic Veterans Division One League.
A local derby midweek for us this week, another heavy pitch but we were up for it after our good results in previous weeks. We knew it would be tough and that’s exactly how it was.
After our good win last week, Town were keen to carry on the momentum. We had beat our opponents 4-0 on the opening day of the season so knew if we could do the right things we would give ourselves a good chance.
