Log-in to
  • VEC’s Pick-A-Winner (PAW) Competition commenced on 7th March 2020 but with the Premier Division Fixtures suspended soon after due to Covid-19, so too PAW had to be put on hold!
  • So it will resume on the weekend of June 19/20/21 with Round 2 and will continue until Round 10 at the end of the season.
  • Of the 69 who entered, 28 have submitted their selections. The remaining 41 players should do so before 12 noon on Friday 19th June. Good luck!
