Following last weekends encouraging opening hour against Uhlsport Hellenic Premier side Brimscombe & Thrupp, Town are back in action on Friday night with a short trip along the A420 to Barrington Park, the home of Shrivenham Development.
This week, we play Witney Royals in the Uhlsport Hellenic Premier Division, looking to apply pressure on the top two. The game has been switched to the Cinder Lane Stadium for a 7.45pm kickoff.
‘On the road, back again’ is the motto for this week’s Vet’s fixture, as we travel back to Old Hooky Vet’s. This fixture was originally played in October, when Town were on the end of a 4-1 defeat against a very good home side. However, the match referee on the night, reported an under-age player, which the league deemed was correct and Old Hooky had three additional points deducted, as well as this fixture having to be replayed, much to both clubs dissatisfaction!
Last week, the Vets saw their Hellenic League Vets Cup quarter-final with Aylesbury FC Vets postponed two and a half hours prior to kick off, due to a number of the visiting players dropping out and therefore, leaving Aylesbury with insufficient players to fulfil the fixture. The league have confirmed that the tie has been awarded to Town and we now progress into the semi-finals.
So after nearly 6 weeks without a fixture, the Vets are back in action on Wednesday evening, when they entertain Didcot Town Vets at the Cinder Lane Stadium, kick off 7.45pm.
Town Vets are on the road tonight, with a trip to early season favourites Didcot Town Vets at the GWR Loop Meadow Stadium. Kick off is at 7.45pm and the lads would appreciate a The Don following coming over and supporting them in their quest for three points. The ground is at Bowmont Water, Ladygrove, Didcot, OX11 7GA.
