The village of Over is a small village around 15 kilometres from Cambridge. The village has a number of thriving sports clubs and an excellent Community Centre.

The Centre At Over

Over Veterans Football Club is a men's amateur football club for players aged 35 years and above who love the game of football but do not wish to commit themselves to playing competitive games each week. We play 8-a-side games each Thursday evening on an all-weather 'Astroturf' pitch. We also play friendly games once a month against other clubs in the locality. We usually call ourselves 'The Vets', although some of the cheekier members of the village senior football team have renamed us 'The Old Gits' - a nickname that seems to have stuck.

The club is thriving with over thirty members and a waiting list. Although every member enjoys the game, we take care not to take ourselves too seriously. The only competition our team enters is a veteran's tournament each June. This is organised by members of our own club with four other teams invited to take part. The tournament is always competitive but played in a friendly spirit with strong emphasis placed on the social side of the event.

We are a very friendly club and enjoy numerous social outings. We would very much like to broaden our horizons with other veterans clubs in the UK or abroad. We might even get around to playing football!
