Wick Annual Vets Sixes
Wick FC will be holding their annual Veteran’s sixaside competition on Saturday 02nd June, now in its ninth year we're promising a great social event for all involved. We are planning to start games at 11am to allow the competition to be over before the scheduled 5:15pm England clash against Nigeria at Wembley, which we are planning to show on a big projector screen in our clubhouse. Over the last three competitions we have donated over £1500 to charity and our target this year if we manage to fill all the spots is £500. Upon entry each team will have the opportunity to nominate a charity of their choice to be selected from a ballot as the receiving charity will receive all entrance fees and any other donations. The day will be a great opportunity to meet up with players past and present in a friendly atmosphere. We are hoping to get 16 Football Associated affiliated teams on-board, running 4 leagues with each team guaranteed 3 games. We have taken on some feedback from last year and will be widening the pitches and providing opportunity for teams that finish in 3rd and 4th places to play other games. Team entrance fee is £30 and all players must be strictly 35 or over. There will be a variety of refreshments available throughout the day and each game affiliated by a qualified official. The tournament rules and entry form can be provided via the contact details below. We are keen to confirm numbers ASAP so if you’re interested please could you let us know by the end of March. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact me on 07977 510352 or email@example.com or message us on facebook at ‘Wick Football Club - Bristol’. Thanks Matt Davis

2017/18 Fixtures out
The 2017/18 fixtures are now published. Please note that, following the AGM, there will be a strict clampdown on cup ties, which MUST be played by the dates given, or forfeited by the team(s) that fails to comply.
Note also that the cup final date has been arranged and WILL be played on that date or I serve notice to quit on principal :)
A small further note - a couple of clubs have more than one team (i.e. Weston),and have asked for fixture dates for those clubs to be staggered as they have a cross-over of players. I have given them a few days to suggest alternative dates and I will amend these shortly. If your club knows it has problems fulfilling a fixture on a certain date - i.e due to a wedding/tour etc - let me know by 31st July and I will select another date.
I therefore suggest clubs wait until 31st July for any further date changes prior to confirming games/changing game dates.
I have hopefully avoided all "black" Sundays...Mothers Day, Easter Sunday etc...
