Middlesex Vets Cup

The Middlesex Vets Cup is an unseeded, straight knockout competition to be played on Saturday afternoons.

“A Vet is defined as a player who is or will be thirty five (35) years of age during the current season. Teams are asked to adhere to the spirit of the competition in fielding as many age qualified players as possible at all times. Teams should have as a minimum, twelve vets on the pitch at any time.”

The first named team will play at home with the responsibility for arranging the referee. A team that plays at home in the competition will play away in the next round and vice versa. If both teams either played at home or were both away in the previous round then a toss of the coin will determine the home side.

Provided both clubs agree the match can be played anytime up to the designated date for the round of the competition This includes midweek or Friday nights under lights. Where clubs can’t agree the match will be played on the designated date.
