New Friday Night Fixtures for Northumberland Veterans Launched for 2019/20 Season

Friday 30 August 2019

Following a successful NRU VetFest Tournament in April this year, a proposal for a more regular set of Vets fixtures for the new season has been agreed between:

  • Morpeth Ranters
  • Ashington Colliers
  • Novos
  • Whitley Bay Rockcliffe

The plan is that all four clubs will commit a minimum of 8+ vets players (age 35+) to each bi-monthly fixture but preferably bring a full side if they can. They will play 15-a-side game(s) between 2 or more sides depending on overall player numbers on the night. 

Individual Vets from other Clubs are very welcome to come along too, please let Club host know in advance. Reminders will be posted on the NE Vets Facebook prior to each fixture.

When? Fri nights, 7pm start, bi-monthly

Where? rotating venues, details below
