Notts Police Vets reach National Cup Final

    •  

This Thursday, 18th May see’s Nottinghamshire Police Veterans flying the flag for the county, as they take on Scotland Police in the National Police cup final at the City Ground in a 5pm kick off.

It’s the first time the team, who play in the East Midlands Veterans league, have reached the final. All of the players have played for many years, representing the Police in Nottinghamshire Leagues.

Notts Police have a proud history in local football, previously having sides in the old Notts Alliance, and then the NSL.

Insp Suk Verma commented prior to the game by saying: "We are delighted to have got to the final. The season has been one of the best I’ve been involved in and to finish it with a cup final is something that will be remembered for years, especially as we are lucky enough to be playing in our home county.

"We would also like to thank Nottingham Forest who’ve been fantastic in helping to host and organise the match.

“If anyone is available to come and watch, all the lads would be hugely appreciative of any support the local community can give us.”

A 4-0 win away at Hampshire in the semi-final secured the teams place in Thursday’s showpiece.

Admission is free, but players are hoping supporters will give generously to charities, in memory of Dc Tim Dunne. Tim represented the Police on many occasions, and was also an active youth coach in the county. He unexpectedly passed away whilst cycling on a family holiday in Majorca in 2016.

We’d like to wish the team all the best for the final.
