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

Many of you might be aware that former player Anthony O'Leary suffered a major stroke some 18 months ago and has, until recently, been in a residential care home during his recuperation. Whilst improving, his recovery is a slow process, but he has now been able to return home.
There is a long road ahead and Gary Hays has set up a facebook donation page to provide some financial support t the family at this difficult time. You can find the Go Fund Me page here. We send Olly our best wishes for his recovery and our support for Mandy and the family.
Tour Lisbon 27 May 2021
The first tour for five years is planned for the May bank holiday next year. After the disappointment of losing this year's tour due the covid pandemic, the numbers are looking great for the tour with many new tour faces (and some very old ones returning for a swansong). There will be many songs!
Well done to Dan Forde for organising.
"Once a Salvo..."
The magazine for past pupils of the school has been published with our very own super model, James Smith, on the cover.
