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
Telephone: 01923 243947

Spencer, brother of player Jack McCall and nephew of life member Jim O'Sullivan, sadly passed away on Thursday 15th July , having fought against a rare cancer over the past couple of years.
A Harrow Boro player, Spencer was held in very high regard by that club and touched all those he met after his diagnosis with his approach in the face of such terrible news. His courage and bravery were inspirational and testament to his character.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the McCall family at such a difficult time.
Barry Cummins funeral arrangements
Barry passed away Thursday 3rd June after a heart attack. Barry was a superb footballer, renowned for his passing and stamina, representing the 1st XI for many years before moving to play higher level, later returning to the club's lower sides. A strong player and true gentleman on and off the pitch.
Funeral will be 20th July at St Margaret's RC church, Twickenham, TW1 1RL. Burial will be a private ceremony. Reception afterwards will be held at Strawberry Hill Golf Club. Please advise Andy Harrington should you wish to attend.
