The Veterans League is coming to South Wiltshire

The Wiltshire Senior League will be running a South Wiltshire Veterans League, utilising the 3G pitch at Sarum Academy in Salisbury.

In 2019 the Wiltshire Senior League took over the running of the Wiltshire Veterans League. Since then it has grown from 8 teams to 20 teams, with an established North Wilts Division and a Mid Wilts Division. Fixtures run on midweek evenings and the league utilises 3G pitch hire to ease the strain on clubs to find or use their own facilities – although some clubs do take the option of using their own floodlit grounds. Teams include senior clubs, youth club coaches, supporters or just groups of friends.

Following the news that the Sarum Academy 3G in Salisbury has begun construction with activity planned to commence from January 2022, the Wiltshire Senior League will be booking the 3G to deliver a South Wilts Veterans Division and as such are now taking expressions of interest in entering the league.  

More information about the league and the proposal can be found in the below PDF presentation, which includes some thoughts from current clubs. A consultation evening will be held in the coming weeks to provide more detailed information.
