Horsford have started the season extremely well as they sit top of the division having a perfect 100% record. Their main source of goals has come in the form of Grant Holt who has scored 7 goals 3 appearances so far this season. Horsford will be hoping to carry on their fine form on Sunday.  

Thetford have been scoring freely in the league as they have tallied up 19 goals in only 4 matches. Their only loss in the league came away from home at a very strong Cringleford side where they only lost by one goal.

Matt Carpenter, Chairman of the Leathes Prior Veterans League said “We are excited to have a feature fixture in our League for what will hopefully be a great advert for veteran’s football as two of our top teams meet each other

“We are also delighted that both Horsford and Thetford are taking part in the rainbow laces campaign along with the referee, Matt Hudson as we help spread the important message of #NorfolkFootballForALL“

Chris Brown, Chairman of Horsford FC talked of his excitement of the match: “We're delighted to be a feature match as part of the 2018 Rainbow Laces campaign. At Horsford FC, we are a club that is open to all and are fully inclusive and our Veterans will be sporting the rainbow laces provided by Stonewall, this Sunday.

“Norfolk Football is leading the way with the initiative and we should be proud in our efforts so far. The Veterans match this Sunday should be an exciting one, with the team looking to extend their lead at the top of the Leathes Prior Veterans League. Everyone is welcome to attend, and it's a great opportunity to visit The Nest for the first time!”
