Vets Riding High at Christmas Break

By Tim Armitage

Happy Christmas and a victorious New year

I am delighted to confirm that the Redsox head into the Christmas break five points clear at the top of the London Vets League Div 2 (see attached). Played 10, won 9, lost 1. We have an amazing 44 goals for and a miserly 12 against (these numbers include a 5-0 walkover from the cancelled EG game on Saturday as they were again unable to raise a side willing to travel to Reading).

Fingers crossed the Rustlers beat Old Georgians on Saturday to make it a hatrick of Reading Vets teams at the top of their leagues – the perfect Xmas present for Bartie and RHC.

Please note, have now filled our Redsox Burns Night table of 12 FOR Jan 19th but if we get more willing revellers soon we will try to book a second Vets table.

Wishing you all a Happy Christmas and a victorious New year


PS. As promised I did a quick count up and found our 39 goals have come from 16 different goal scorers, so the top gun position is very much up for grabs – see summary below. (Hunty & Steve S you cannot claim any of the 5-0 walkover goals!)
