vets

We have an informal vets team of over 35s Langton Green coaches / parents who are happy to play friendly fixtures against other local vets teams (over 35s). If you're interested in organising a fixture with us, please e-mail ian.knapp@langtongreencsa.org.uk and I'm sure we can sort something out.

Fixtures & Results:

Langton Green 6 - 0 Frant (Phil M x 3, Ian K x 2, Tim A)

We played our first fixture on May 13th 2018, against Frant, who were also playing their first game, on their newly renovated pitch. It was an excellent match, with both teams playing some good football in a great spirit. Langton ran out winners in the end with a stirling performance from Phil M up front, fed by a solid midfield and resolute defence and goalkeeper. We rode our luck in the second half particularly, against a strong Frant attack, but in the end the win was probably deserved, even if the scoreline flattered us slightly. It was great fun and we of course look forward to a return fixture in due course.

Langton Green 3 - 3 Frant (Ian K x 2, Chris A)

The return match in early 2019 was an altogether different affair, Frant fielding a significantly stronger side who had clearly benefitted from some more regular 11 a side football than we'd managed to organise (this was only our second game!)... We played well at times, created marginally more chances than our opposition, but they dominated long spells of possession and in the end a draw was a fair result on a hot afternoon at Langton Rec. Standout performances from Rob H and Matt M at the back saw us propel a lot of aerial bombardments and excellent approach play and clinical finishing at the other end gave us 3 well-taken goals.
