don't hang up your boots just yet.
We know many people want to keep playing football for as long as possible. That's why Herefordshire FA run an 11 v 11 veterans league in the summer months.
The popular league continues to grow and in 2017 six teams competed for the league title with Tupsley Vets eventually taking home the trophy.
Whilst maintaining that important competitive element, the league is played in a fun and friendly environment and offers the ideal opportunity for veteran players to get back into football. With Herefordshire FA organising fixtures, referees and facilities the league is more flexible and requires less commitment from teams. Once your team is set up and registered essentially all you need to do is turn up and play!
With rolling subsititutions and 80 minute matches (40mins each half) there is plenty of time to catch your breath back if needed. Games are tradtionally played on Sundays with a variety of kick off times to suit your schedule and played fortnightly throughout the summer at a central venue.
We are always looking to attract new players and teams so please get in touch if you are interested!
