Just in case you are the slightest bit interested, I have archived the previous Vets News Pages from January 2001. It's quite interesting to look back on a few of the events that have occurred during our past games, some of them amusing and some of them downright sad. Click the button at the top.

Sunday 25th June 2017 : A very healthy fourteen vets made the kick off for tonight's 5 a side bash with three teams on view. Sadly Gavin Kent picked up a hand injury in the first game and had to drop out of the session, hopefully it will clear up soon and we'll see the little guy back again next week. After a bit of team jiggling early doors we settled down to a decent contest between three very different sides.  The Strollers seemed to have drawn the short straw being selected without a recognised runner in the side as I had been transferred to the Youngish Guns. Add to this Graham Levine was operating on one cylinder with his dodgy heel injury so it came as no surprise that success was a limited commodity. They battled well though with Ade operating as an attacking defender, midfielder and striker with some degree of success. They didn't manage a win until the last game of the night although they did manage a couple of draws. Mary's Moaners on the other hand had Rick Evans standing in for the missing Cockney Hippie Keith Mastin and, he made a pretty good fist of it to boot. They maybe just shaded the top team of the night with some great footy played with style, not surprising as Paulo Garner made a return to the line up that struggled without him last week. This allowed our resident Jocko Ronnie Dooley the freedom to attack and he did this to great effect. The Youngish Guns ripped into the session like a team on a mission but sadly the wheels dropped off as they faded during the latter stages. I was well pleased by playing outfield in all the games for my teams tonight, something I haven't managed for two years since my heart operation. This surprised me more than anyone and I managed to pop in quite a few goals as well so I can pat myself on the back and say at last - Malc is back!!

Sunday 2nd July 2017 : Without doubt one of the best sessions for weeks in this six a side encounter between two very well selected sides. Mary's Moaners took the first game 10-07 with a pretty decent performance although the Youngish Guns were their own worst enemies as they gifted goal after goal to the opposition. In Ronnie Dooley the Moaners had an outstanding leader as he drove forward at every opportunity including a wonderful toe bunger that somehow evaded everyone and ended up in the top corner. Zsu Zsu Mastin also managed to mark a half decent display with a tap in to add to some cracking strikes by Podders and Evans Above. Chris Todd earning a chance to star in the Moaners line up didn't let himself down as he joined in the scoring. The Young Guns played well enough but as I said, they made too many simple errors giving possession away. In the second game it was a different story, although they were on the end of a 3 goal deluge in the first few minutes. Then Anthony Graham and Cameron Shaw got a grip with the aid of Chris Anthony who was probably the most reliable player in the team. A couple of Chris Anthony strikes put the Youngish Guns in control and they soon found themselves 7-4 up. Pottie then stepped in with an unlucky own goal to be followed by a spirited come back by the moaners who levelled things up at 8-8. However, a goal from Rick Westwood restored the Youngish Guns lead before Chris Anthony fired in the winner. The deciding game was abandoned after Anthony Graham went over on his ankle preventing him from continuing - we decided to call it a night. This follows Gavin Kent's injury last week which happened in the first game - he ended up in A&E with a broken wrist, we all wish him a speedy recovery.
 Finally on a sad note, this week saw the seventh year since Robbie Westwood's passing when Rick lost a father and we lost one of our own - we won't forget the little fella.

Sunday 9th July 2017 : This evening twelve vets indulged in the weekly soirée that is 5 a side football which in actual fact was 6 a side this week. Two incredibly well matched sides battled it out to a 1-1 draw in games at the end of a lung busting night. Chris Todd was the top man in Mary's Moaners although he is the least likely moaner in the whole set up. He found some superb strikes to go with his collection of neat passes gratefully accepted by Podders and Paulo Garner. Nigel managed to net a couple of fizzers and he also put in a good showing against the tricky Cameron Shaw. Jonboy Goodwin managed to upset Rick Pott when he gently guided him into the wall, no one knows why we call him the assassin. I don't recall our Cockney Hippie Leader Zsu Zsu Mastin finding the net but he played a busy part. As for the Young Guns, bar a few occasions when they managed to find the target, Rick Westwood and Cameron were slightly below par tonight. However, Graham Levine who shared goal keeping duties with myself put himself about a bit as did Rick Pott - both managed to get on the scoresheet. Goal of the night was a toss up between my ripper into the top corner or Chris Anthony's stunner from an impossible angle that fair flew in. As for the scores, The Youngish Guns won the first 10-9 and Mary's won the second 10-8 when The Youngish Guns managed to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.

Sunday 16th July 2017 : We missed the terrifying toe-punting of Rick Potts, the seismic strikes from Paulo Garner, the haunting hobbling of Malc Hough as only 9 warriors turned up for tonight’s session. It was touch and go whether or not we took the cheap option of restricting play to just 60 minutes but such was the enthusiasm, the pent-up energy, the lust for glory, there was only one choice and the full 90 minute Monty was played. We welcomed back Josh Mackie after a long absence, and he teamed up with Rick Westwood and Cameron Shaw to do the running stuff, leaving Chris Anthony as the attacking defender. Some terrific matches, with the old musketeers taking advantage of their numeric supremacy by squeaking by in three of the 4 games. More players needed next week if we are to avoid a financial crisis later in the season……!

Sorry for the late report and for my non appearance last Sunday, still nursing a calf injury.

Sunday 23rd July 2017 : Ten of the guys limped into the sports hall at the Leisure Centre for tonight's gathering of vets to contest a mixed bag of 5 a side games. The Youngish Guns were out of the blocks like a startled rabbit in the headlights of a runaway car. Goals from Anthony Graham, Rick Pott and Rick Westwood built a healthy lead helped by the deceptively quick thinking of pass master Chris Anthony. Rick Pott defended like a good 'en whilst my goalkeeping kept the Moaners at bay. After building up an 8-4 lead the Moaners somehow got back into it with Paulo and Ronnie fired up like men on a mission. This inspired Cameron Shaw to take advantage of my Claudio Bravo inspired distribution to slam the ball past me into the waiting net. Five soon became six and we were wobbling, more so when Zsu Zsu himself flicked one past me. Chris Podmore was next to step up and suddenly it was 8-8 and the wobble had turned into a quiver. Time to rally and step up Anthony Graham and Chris Anthony to fire in two corkers to seal the win. Well, the limpers were running out of steam, Chris and Pottie with their knees, Anthony with his ankle and my calf strain so that meant Rick Westwood would have to be our legs and as hard as he tried the Moaners were just that bit more likely to to win the next game and so it proved although, not without some very generous score keeping from our Cockney Hippie leader when all my team mates thought it was 9-9 Zsu Zsu announced 10-9 to the Moaners, ho hum. The third game inevitably went to the Moaners who took full advantage of the fatigued Youngish Guns who went down like a surrendering Italian army who had lost their will to live. As for me, I only played a short while out of nets but managed one shot one goal, I'll settle for that. Overall though a mighty fine run out but mark my words, we'll be back next week to give it another crack.
