Christmas Cup

Although the men's over 50s squad finished second in their group, they were unfortunate not to qualify for the semi-finals of the Christmas Cup.
 
They began with a 1 - 0 win over Abbeymead Rovers and a 1 - 0 win over Salisbury. They followed this with a 2 - 0 win over Cirencester and then drew with Bicester Fossils 0 - 0.
The remaining two games were lost 0 - 1 to Highworth and Exeter.

Christmas Cup

Our men's over 60's squad of Simon Jaggs, Andy Beal, Ken Wroe, Kenny Yip, Malcolm Hailes, Steve Weitzel, and Martin Scarfe could not qualify for the knockout stages of this year's Christmas Cup.
 
They began with a 1-1 draw against Clevedon, in which they had a goal disallowed, and the Clevedon goal took a deflection, hit the post and went in.
The second game, against Highworth Grangers ended in a 2-1 defeat, with us having two players blue carded so ended up playing four v six which put paid to the chances of an equaliser.
 
Havant Hawks from Hampshire were next up and after going a goal down we played well but couldn't score the equaliser. This game saw our keeper take a shot full in the face which caused a few minutes delay, this was probably the best game of the day despite the defeat.
 
The final group match against Exeter saw United finally get 3 points with a 1-0 win.

The A team competed in the cup competition but started slowly with a 1 – 0 defeat by Watford, followed by a 2 – 1 loss to Godalming.

Matters improved with a 2 – 0 win over Godalming Blue, and the day ended with a 1 – 1 draw against Wokingham Black.

This meant a fourth place finish with 9 points under the competition scoring system of 3 points for a win,2 for a score draw, and 1 for a no score draw, with an additional point for each goal scored.

TVL Cup & Trophy Preliminary Rounds

It was a great day for our club with all three teams doing extremely well in the preliminary rounds of the TVL Cup and Trophy competitions.

The C team did very well, unfortunately, however, just missing out on qualifying for the Quarter finals by finishing in fifth place.

The A and B teams both finished in third place and therefore qualified for the quarter-finals at Bisham Abbey on Sunday, June 13th. After a slow start by both teams they improved with every match and the A team finished by beating Oxford Rovers 2 -1 in the final game.
