Wessex Supervets Fixtures Alliance
A “League of Friendlies”, formed in 2002, to provide evenly matched games of hockey between teams of players over 50 years of age.
Stourport SuperVets v Wessex SuperVets Invitation XI 8-
I have secured two additional fixtures with my old club, Stourport, where I played in the 1960s.
Clive Kendall who some of you may know from Stourport and the Ancient Britons has pencilled in 8 December 2018 v a Stourport Over 50s Vets team PLUS a possibility of a 2nd game the following day (9 December) against a mixture of Stourport Vets, Worcester and Ancient Britons. A few ladies may also be invited to play.
From the Wessex standpoint I am hopeful that Amersham and Oxford, who don’t have an Alliance fixture that weekend, will form the lion’s share of our team, but other Wessex team members are welcome to play too if your Club commitments allow.
Clive is sending me details of local hotels and other attractions as I suspect partners may wish to come too (if only to go Xmas shopping) and make a weekend of it.
For those of you who don’t know Stourport, it has been described as the ‘Blackpool of the Midlands’. Nearby Bewdley is a picturesque village, also on the River Severn. There is a Safari Park a short distance away and a steam train which at that time of year is usually running Santa Claus steam trains up and down the Severn Valley. Stourport is not far from the M5 just north of Worcester.
I will coordinate and liaise with you all, and confirm at the end of October whether or not we have a team for both days’ hockey, whether partners are coming too, and then book accommodation for the Saturday night, or Friday night if members want to travel up earlier, and possibly dinner on the Saturday evening too.
