Veteran players are taking on Super Veterans at Cannock Rugby Club on Saturday 21st August at 12.30 for the prestigious Dedred Cup. The holders are the Vets who are made up of players who are well past their sell by date but are still playing regularly. The “Super Vets” are players who no longer regularly play but are up for “just one more game”.
Last year the Super Vets actually had 3 generations from one family playing on the pitch at the same time. As you can gather for this game the rules are there as a sort of guideline rather than to be obeyed Non the less its hyper competitive, and is the curtain opener to a great weekend of Rugby – and as sponsors of the Cup itself, Dedred are proud to be associated with it. Especially as one of our team from Dedred is captaining the Vets.
The 2nds are taking on Essington 2nds at 1.30, and the Presidents Shield will be fought over at 3 Oclock vs Essington 1sts. Sunday sees the continuation of the rugby festival with Cannock Lioness’ taking on a Barbarian select team at 2pm.
