Rutland Veterans won the Alconbury Veterans six-a-side tournament in June without conceding a goal.

Darren Munton was in outstanding scoring form and Ainsley Preddy kept a clean sheet in each of the six games.

The squad also included captain Mark Bryan, Mark Schiavi, Mark Toms, Kerry Nimmons and Andy Finch.

Bryan, Preddy and Finch were selected for two English Amateur Veterans games - a 6-0 win over Aston University Vets - then in two age group games, over-55 and over-60, against Wales Vets in Bristol.

Rutland’s Barry Suggett, Adrian Stannard, Bryan, Nimmons and Finch took part with both a 4-1 score - in favour of Wales in the over-55s and the English Veterans in the over-60s.

The next English Vets game is expected to be in September against Northern Ireland Vets in Nottingham.

Rutland will resume their fixtures in the Peterborough League in September.
