Athletic’s Veterans side will be looking to turn in another vintage performance this afternoon when they take to the Thorpe United pitch to face Thorpe United Veterans. The game has a 2pm kick-off time and looking ahead at the weather, it should be cloudy with sunny intervals, but quite chilly!
Both teams will be hoping for a maximum yield in points as it could, if Harrogate Veterans draw or lose to York Corinthians, see them sitting pretty at the top of the Harrogate & District Veterans 11-a-side League come 4pm!
Currently, four teams - Harrogate, Wetherby, Thorpe and Ilkley - are tied on 12 points each and it’s only a single goal difference that is separating Harrogate from Athletic!
Athletic’s last match saw them work hard to secure a 3-2 win over Ilkley Town and it is the kind of form that they would like to continue into this game. Thorpe, on the other hand, had an easier time of it, beating Harrogate 3-0. It promises to be an absolutely smashing game!
If you wish to watch this match, the address you will need is Field Lane, Thorpe Willoughby, Selby, North Yorkshire, YO8 9FL
