Vets Team STGP


RAF FA Veterans

Over 35s who are or have served in the Royal Air Force.

The primary objective of the Royal Air Force Football Association Veterans Team is to provide opportunities to engage in the sport of Association Football, developing team spirit and morale and to encourage and maintain physical fitness to personnel over the age of 35 age, whether currently serving or who have previously served in the Royal Air Force.

The RAF FA Veterans are not active in a weekly league competition, however, the Club plays regularly, on a monthly basis, against other Services and against professional academies. 

The Club has over 65 active members and plays over 12 fixtures a season including an annual overseas visit which over recent seasons has included the Germany and Cyprus, with ambitions to spread their wings further in the future.
