A New Challenge For The Vets
31st Jul 2014
The club's Veterans, as well as playing their usual friendly matches this season, will also be competing in a league for the first time.
The idea of entering a league was first thought of towards the end of last season, although nothing had been formally decided and the usual friendly fixtures were being arranged.
However, during this process, we discovered that a number of our regular opponents were themselves playing in a league, or in fact were no longer playing at all.
The result was that we were in danger of only finding 10 opponents for the next season which would not give us a decent number of matches.
During pre-season we were also asked to consider joining a new Ware Vets League; the outcome was that it was felt that the additional games the league would deliver, in addition to our regular friendlies, would give the squad plenty of football for the forthcoming campaign.
So for the next season we will have a mixture of friendlies and league matches.
