It’s Uhlsport Hellenic League CEO’s Challenge Cup Semi-Final week for the Vets as we travel to Culham Road, Abingdon, OX14 3HP to face Abingdon Town Vets. Kick-off is 7.45pm.
The Vets travelled to the Cinder Lane Stadium as the away side on Wednesday evening, with Witney Royals using the fortress as a home ground for this Uhlsport Hellenic League Vets Premier fixture. The game started in the worst possible way, Town took kick-off, three passes later they had lost possession on the halfway line to Royals and a further pass and shot saw Town 1-0 down within the first…
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!
After a four week enforced break due to the weather and other clubs being unable to field a side, Town Vets were back in action at the Cinder Lane Stadium with Chinnor A Vets the visitors.
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.
