Old Salvatorians F C
Who are we?
Formed in 1953, Old Salvatorians is one of the largest clubs in the Amateur Football Combination, itself one of the biggest football leagues in the world with around 300 teams competing each Saturday. Originally formed only for past pupils and teachers of the Salvatorian College, with which the club still has close links, the club is now "open" and welcomes players who want to enjoy their football, be as good as they can and develop life long friendships.
Our philosophy is based on combining football and friendship. For over sixty years, the club has nurtured this and retains the old boys spirit of playing hard but fair, then enjoying the craic afterwards. Whether an existing or prospective player, past member, opponent, referee, other official or spectator, we welcome and invite you to enjoy our hospitality this season.
Home ground is The Metropolitan Sports & Social Club (formerly Metropolitan Police Sports Club), Aldenham Rd, Bushey, Hertfordshire WD23 2TR

Grass roots football and Covid 19 "lockdown"
Following the government advice that grassroots football can recommence from the 29th March, the Amateur Football Combination has confirmed it will resume the league programme from the 3rd April. The intention is to complete the bulk of the season by the end of May, although the season can run into June on an exceptional basis. Due to the backlog of fixtures, there will be a large number of "double-headers", whereby two games of 60 minutes are played back-to-back.
Fixtures for the rest of the season are now loaded onto the respective team's web page.

We are very sad to hear of the recent passing of ex-player, Billy.
For the past few years, Billy has lived in Warrington, where he died. He represented the club with a number of Old Salvo teams in the mid to late 80's and was friends with many of us. Billy was the brother of the late Sean Rickard who is remembered in the young player of the year award.
Our thoughts are with his surviving brother, Tom, cousin Gerry Callanan and their families.
Rest In Peace, Billy.

Tour Lisbon 27 May 2021
The first tour for five years is planned for the second May bank holiday; current guidance is that non-essential travel is planned to resume from 17 May subject to further data analysis of the covid pandemic both in the UK and elsewhere, whilst there may also be inward restrictions in Portugal. A go/no go decision will be made shortly.
Well done to Dan Forde for organising.
