The Old Oaks SuperVets play in Division 1 of the Over 50s London League. While many club members who are eligible for the SVs prefer to play in the open league sides, we continue to be competitive with third and fourth place finishes since gaining promotion two years ago.
We will play each of the seven other clubs (some of the finest in the country) twice over the season, with games played (generally) fortnightly.
The team is permitted to have on the pitch up to four “underage” players, so eligibility means those born in 1971 or earlier.
We look forward to another challenging season, in which we hope to reduce our squad's average age from the current nearly 60 to closer to 50. As seems to be the case at all levels, the hockey will continue to become more fast and furious, but coupled with the comraderie which comes with playing within a peer group.
