Veterans Final.

Veteran's Trophy Final 2022/23 - Match Preview

In the last of the County Cup Finals for 2023, we’re looking forward to the Veteran's (Over 35) Trophy Final this Friday!

Harraby Catholic Club Veterans are aiming for seven County Cup wins in a row, while Northbank Veterans, although a new team in name, were formed in 2013 under the name of Howard Rangers.

Frizington White Star Veterans were the last team to win the competition in 2014  before Harraby Catholic Club’s dominance in the competition, with the Carlisle based team lifting the trophy after wins against Hall Park Hotel, Creighton Rangers, Carlisle City, Wheatsheaf Wetheral, Cleator Moor Celtic and last season Carlisle City Veterans.

Northbank Veterans finished fifth in the Cumbria Veterans League (North and East Division) with 7 wins and 3 defeats, while Harraby Catholic Club were crowned Champions.


Friday 28 July 2023

Kick Off: 7:00pm

Venue: Derwent Park, Workington

Referee Tommy Linford takes charge of the County Veterans Trophy Final and is assisted by Kevin Young and Mark Kilgour with Graham Turner as fourth official.

We can’t wait to welcome the two finalists, match officials, volunteers and guests in what should be a great advert for the local grassroots football game. 


There’s plenty of local football news included in the programme.

Cumberland FA would like to thank hosts Workington Rugby League in the build up to the Final and for their continued support.
