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

Team reports weekend 21st/22nd January

1st Team – The first team were finally back in action after a 6 week period. From the get go of the game we were completely dominant and cruised home with a 4-0 victory over Albanian I, thanks to goals from Ryan Forde (who also suffered a broken nose in the game), Eoghan Reilly, Kyle O’Connor and Danny Sartori.  

 

2nd Team – The lads wanted to seek revenge on league leaders Ormos after narrowly losing out 4-3 in the away fixture. From the first whistle the game was played at a fast pace with great intensity and a competitive edge. Salvos were not going to allow Ormos to settle and they were not prepared for Salvos initial commitment. Two well worked and taken goals before half time swung the games in Ormos' favour, with the game settled mid-way through the second half when Ormos bagged a scrappy third.  Jack McCall, who had earlier missed tow glorious chances, netted a consolation near the end. l.

 

3rd Team – If ever there was a game where the scoreline didn't reflect the match, this quarter final was it. Taking on the NUFC Oilers from the SAL League, the 3's started brightly in an even-sided first 20 odd minutes, before NUFC scored two well taken break away goals. An opportunistic third from a drop ball after the ball had hit the referee followed by a fourth before half-time left NUFC in control. As the referee said at half-time "it wasn't a 4-0 game". Salvo completely dominated the second half, scoring within 15 minutes from a well struck shot from man of the match, Connor Spinks. A second would have been interesting, but despite pressure and some glorious chances, NUFC's goalie remained unbeaten. Despite the scoreline, the 3's should be encouraged by the performance and proud of what they’ve achieved thus far this season.

 

4th Team – Game Postponed

 

Vets Team (Over 35’s) – A brilliant 4-0 victory over Hatfield United Vets seeing them climb up to 7th position. There was some brilliant football on display which allowed Old Salvos to dominate the game and take full control. There was a fair few chances missed but a big 3 points in the bag, thanks to goals scored by Terry Chamberlin x2, James Burgess & Matt Paine.

Colin Conboy

The club is saddened to hear of the passing of one of its past players and most colourful characters this week. Colin had been unwell for a short while but appeared to be making progress before a sudden decline. 

Colin played for the club in the 80's and 90's and was one of the early adopters of walking football. He will be remembered for his humour, dress sense (including those football boots) and unusual travel arrangements for football tours. He was also a staunch Spurs supporter. One of life's good 'uns, he will be greatly missed by his many Salvo friends.

 

The club sends its condolences to his wife Betty and their three daughters. 

Funeral details will be posted once known. 

 

RIP, Colin.
