Vets 1 had a satisfying 3-1 win, went 2-0 up, Matt (pen) and Steve with the goals, after HT our opponents got one back and after some nervous moments we made sure thanks to Oscar whose celebration was almost worth 2 goals, vets 1 have more points than games played, unchartered territory … great support from vets 2 today!

Vets1. Infinies their good run making it 3 wins out of the last 4 games, with a 1-0 victory against jeunesse at gilloise. It weren’t pretty but the 3 points sure is. The opponents certainly looked like the stronger team in the first half and were unlucky not to score. Arguably we were better in the 2nd half as they appeared to lose a bit of belief and Steven Welsch (which means Walloon in German btw) got a goal, calm finish face to face with the Gk. we really should have taken a bit more control of the game from then on but… failed to do so, and they had a great chance near the end with an outstanding save from MOTM Francois. Great performance from the team all around namely from Paul OG who gets special points for bringing Irish style football to the abssa vets league (opponents not so happy but Roy Keane would approve)

Vets1 won 3-0 against a resurgent Goalois side who had had a tough start to the season but were in full strength today. We played the ball around well, and scored early on through Dimitrios. From then on we were solid in défense and continued to threaten on the attack. Good penalty about for the opposition 20 minutes from time but referee said no. From then on we took a bit more control of the game and scored another two before full time. Great d’ici g header from Tam on a cros from Musti before Rafa sealed the deal with a golazo de Colombia. Buenas noches xx

Vets 1 lost away 0-2…not good enough against a weak and direct opponent. Too many inaccurate passes, bad decisions, not enough composure on the ball and a hardly any chances created and lost Karim 5′ into the second half having made both changes at half time so ended up playing with 10 for the last 30 😬 Frustrating day at the office

Vets 1 had a must win game, went 2-0 down to pull 1 back through Steve on his debut for the team, Clement’s excellent play on the right got us a penalty for the equaliser and Steve made it 3-2 for us, so far a great turnaround but we ran out of steam and conceded 2 in the dying minutes to lose 3-4. 4 minutes from winning…

Vets 1 had a tough afternoon at Tourinnois (out in the sticks), we got back into the game in the 2nd half by reducing the deficit to 2-1 but as we pushed forward for the equaliser they got a 3rd on the break, final score 3-1, not too bad with an improvised team

After 4 practice matches vets1 finally got their season going with a 5-2 victory over Metrasport. Carlos got the first goal with a typical Carlos goal, a little chip over the keeper. Metrasport equalised due to some shabbiness at the back before Matt showed us why he is the captain of this team with a great strike, bottom corner full of rage and passion. John added another at the beginning of the second half with a fantastic curler into the top corner over the outstretched hand of the goalkeeper. Gregorio got a curler in on a corner (correction: Carlos headed the goal bound ball inwards to make sure) before John added another. Final score 5-2. And happy birthday to our youngest recruit, baby faced 38 yr old Tamlin who became eligible to play for us on this very match day.

Vets 1 needed a result againt Trinquant, we did what was needed by taking a 2-0 lead (Matt and a great lob from Rubio), but with nothing to lose and some hesitant play from us, they got 3 back to take the points, while we had chances for a 3rd. Opportunity missed, let’s hope the squad gets more stable.

Vets 1 took the lead against Champions Mutuelle and twice equalised in the first half to stop the opposition from building up a lead, only to see the ref award the softest of penalties to gift them a 4-3 H-T lead, we battled hard in the 2nd half, wasted a couple of chances but still finished with a very respectable 6-4 scoreline and felt like we could have hoped for more.. scores: Matt (2), Manu, Rafa, 2 assists from John S, 1 Johnno and 1 Rafa. Great team effort!
