Over 50s set to begin league journey

Wednesday 2nd September 2020

While Royal Wootton Bassett Town's youth teams return to action this weekend, it also sees the Over 50s Veterans become the club's oldest ever side to play a competitive league fixture.

Having entered cup competitions in each of the last two seasons, Bassett are now making their bow in the Oxfordshire Over 50s Premier League where they will be one of eight teams for the 2020-21 season.

They face a tough opening fixture too as they travel to Hazlemere Sports, who were top of the table when last season was brought to an early conclusion.

The latest development as part of the club's thriving Veterans section, the Over 50s team complements the Over 35s side who will once again participate in the Wiltshire League Veterans Division.

Players interested in joining the club's Veterans' teams should contact the relevant team managers.

The Over 50s team will be managed by Paul Jack and Martyn Purcell, while Paul Davis and Bryan Watson will oversee the Over 35s side.
