Holybourne Veterans’ FC

We were formed by a group of enthusiastic villagers in 2008 and have two teams in the Farnham & District Sunday Football League. This means a squad of around 40 active players from Holybourne, Alton and the surrounding area, aged 35 years and over.

Over the years we have played in Divisions 2 to 6 and have finished runners up in 2 cup finals and runners up in Division 3. The standard every year appears to be improving as more teams are introducing younger Veterans into the fold. Due to the local interest we now have a first and reserve team.

We play our home matches at Holybourne Sports Field when we can and Jubilee playing fields in Alton when we can’t. Unfortunately due to the wet weather we haven’t been able to play in Holybourne much recently.

After matches we generally to go to the White hart pub for post-match analysis, a few beers and a bit of food. We have an excellent team spirit – matches are competitive but almost always enjoyable too.

If you are over 35 and not quite yet ready to hang up the boots, then please contact gary6570@btinternet.com.
