Yes it did really happen on 2nd June 2017 at Valencia's excellent training facilities. The 19 strong AUFC Vets team took on the might of Valencia C.F Vets following a tour of the Mestalla stadium.
It doesn't get much better than this at Veterans level, playing against top quality players on a playing surface that was as good as any Premier league ground.
The memory of that game and the following one against Levante will stay with every member of the touring party for ever.
The photo shows both teams joining together pre match.
The Valencia team were:
Pedro Albarracin, Juan Sanchez, Fernando, Juanjo Juarez, Emilio Fenoll, Vicente Bondia, Arturo Boix, Luis Alcala, Tatin, Juan C Mohorte, Moraga, Elias, Titin, Rafa Alexandre, Vincente Cervera, Ricardo Arias
