A crowd of almost 70 people witnessed a valiant effort by a Sabden Veterans’ Team to topple the current Sabden FC team.

In a friendly Bank Holiday match on Sunday the Vets were leading 5-4 with only 20 minutes to go, before tiredness took a hold. The Sabden first team eventually triumphed by 8 goals to 5.

Despite the final score, there was real fear for long periods that the Vets were going to break the eight-match unbeaten run and it was by far the best performance by a Veterans’ team in many a long year.
