Playing Career

Veigas was born back in June 1984 in a city north of Portugal called Viseu, where he was brought up and while still at school he had a successful trial for his home city Viseu CF who ended up offering him s youth contract.

He spent a couple years in the youth team while still getting a education almost against his will as he hated studying but the studying was part of his youth contract agreement.

Eventually in 2000 he was giving the chance in Viseu's 3rd game of the season due to a serious injury to a first team player. Veigas did not look back from there and went on to finish his debut season on a high with 21 games to his name. Viseu tried to hold on to they bright talented lad...

Season ended and during the summer of 2001, Maritino came knocking and Veigas agreed to move on a free. Due to his age Maritimo had to pay a compensation fee of £100K to Viseu CF.

After such a rise Veigas also made his Portugal U'19 debut in the first season with the club.

For 2 season he enjoyed his football and developed further and started to attract a number of big clubs. Although at the end of the first season, no one inquired about his services he was committed to Maritino and had a very good second season. Totaling 48 games in two seasons for Maritimo.

In 2003 a few clubs came knocking, and Veigas jumped at the opportunity to play for his beloved SL Benfica and joined them in July that year. That summer he rejected Braga and a move to England to join up with West Ham.

2003-2004 campaign started with him playing for Benfica's U'19. The lad started that year on fire that Benfica manager had no hesitation to bring him to the first team and give him a chance. He was given his chance against Panafiel in the Portuguese cup 2nd round. Veigas played again 2 weeks after, when he was given a start in a league game against Braga. That was to be his first league game for the club and last. Veigas suffered such a horrific injury in that game that took him out for the season. That season turned into nearly two seasons that he was out for, trying to get back into football. It eventually forced him to retire in 2006 at the age of 22.

His injury stop him playing, but the love for football did not allow him to walk away from it...

Management Career

In early 2007, Veigas decided to move to East Sussex in the UK to take his UEFA Pro License. While doing this he started to go support the local team Lewes FC and soon became a very popular figure in all the home matches as his playing history was discovered.

In 2008, Lewes FC assistant manager decided to walk and fingers pointed at Veigas to join the staff at Lewes where he became their new assistant manager half way through the season. Lewes finished just 6 points away from grabbing a play-off spot.

The following season Lewes struggled to keep up with their previous seasons performance and where facing a serious relegation battle. Manager was given his marching orders with 10 games to go and Veigas was appointed as Lewes' new manager. Lewes survived the drop by 3 points that year.

2010-2011 was Veigas's first full season as a manager. Lewes finishing 8th and shocked the FA Cup fans across the country when they beat West Brom in the F.A Cup round 2, only to lose to Brighton in the 3rd round. The next season was a straight forward mid table finish for Lewes who struggled in the first 10 games to gain points but their form picked up.

At the end of 2011-2012, Lincoln FC made their move for Veigas to become their manager after rumors came out that he wasn't very happy in East Sussex due to personal reasons.

In 2012, Veigas jumped at the opportunity for the fresh start he needed and agreed to manage Lincoln City.

Veigas spent two very good seasons at Lincoln achieving top 10 finishes and winning the FA Trophy in 2013.

Later in 2013 Veigas joins Alfreton Town FC...where more history is about to be written.

Alfreton Town's

Season 1 Kit

Alfreton's season got a boost this morning when they announced a new kit deal with 'Nike' and new sponsor deal with the makers of Call Of Duty. Both have agreed terms with Alfreton on a 1 year deal, with the option of increasing that to a extra 2 years providing we finish in the top 10 this season.

Here is the new 'Season 1 Kit'

New kit is now for sale at the club official website for £19.99 per shirt.

Call Of Duty Spokesman

We are very happy to be sponsoring Alfreton. They have the right attitude about football. Having brought in Veigas as new manager and a couple of signings in the likes of Keane and Lingard, they are showing that the they are moving forward but also looking at the future. This is a short term deal we have agreed but we are all confident that they will achieve their target, I think really next season will be Alfreton's choice as I'm sure they will have more offers. Think that is why they only wanted a 1 year deal, so we said 'ok, in that case we will only externd should you finish 10th or higher'. We are all happy with the final agreement.
