Ascot United Vets. End of season review 2021/22

#WeAreAscot.

For the first time in the history of Ascot United, the Vets had two teams competing in league football. Both teams now play in the West London Vets’ league. The first team had a hugely successful season and were crowned joint champions of division 1. They were promoted to the premier league with their third promotion in three seasons and also reached the semi-final of the league cup beating 3 premier league sides on that cup run. The season record was P18, W16, D0, L2, F110 A26.

There was a lovely glance back at history when the 100th goal of the campaign was set up by Rob Saunders and beautifully curled into the top corner by Toby Underwood. Both these lads started playing for Ascot United when 5 years old and their fathers were both heavily involved in the early stages of Ascot United’s history.

The second team finished a very credible fourth in division 3 registering some fantastic victories and some agonising defeats.

We continue to run two hour weekly training sessions (all year round) and the development of the monthly “two touch” Presidents Cup (competing for the Doug Page trophy) continues to give players the chance to improve and to exercise. The training sessions provide the whole squad with the opportunity to stay fit and healthy as they extend their 11-a-side playing careers.
