Spitfire Gold  Veterans Competition 2018-19
Our thanks once again to Shepherd-Neame who have provided Sponsorship to this competition for a 5th consecutive year, via their Spitfire Gold branding.
Principles of the competition.
Competition Objectives
1.     This year, we have stayed at 26 clubs, meaning that Tier 1 (which plays for the Cup) will have 16 teams, whilst Tier 2, which plays for the Bowl, will have 10 teams.
2.     The aim of the Competition is to help sustain Vets rugby in Kent by providing a coherent, meaningful and enjoyable competition for older players.
3.   The first principle is that we should strive to conduct ourselves in a gentlemanly, hospitable and sporting manner in our dealings with one another.
4.     There is no point in playing rugby unless we are trying to win but participation is also important and all participants should make every effort to get their matches played – and on time.
5.     Sunday afternoons are preferred to encourage wider support and boost club bar profits.
6.     The competition is divided into two Tiers, to cater for larger and smaller clubs – in the interests of realistic competition.
7.     The Pool stages are grouped geographically to avoid excessive travelling
8.     This year, there will be a Cup, Plate and Shield Final in the Tier 1 and a Bowl final for Tier 2, to be played on a finals day in the County Town.
