The third cup tie in as many weeks saw the lads play Marston Saints at Carterton Town FC, knowing a draw would suffice, but wanting a win to keep the momentum running from last week.
So with last week’s emphatic victory over Carterton Town keeping Town Vets in the hunt for a place in the knockout stages of the Vets Cup, Town travel to Carterton Town to take on Marston Saints Vets in this final Group A fixture. Kick off at the Community Stadium, Kilkenny Lane OX18 1DY on Wednesday is 7.45pm.
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.
