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

We are sorry to advise that Elisabeth "Bessie" Clancy, mother of former Fixtures Secretary, Mark, and grandmother to former players Richard and Nicky passed away this week.
The funeral will be held at St Joseph's RC church, Wealdstone on the 5th November; in view of the current restrictions, only family invited attendees are allowed.
Our sympathies are with Elisabeth's husband Frank as well as Mark, Richard, Georgina and Nicky and the whole family.
To former player Aido Dowling and his wife Cathriona on the recent arrival of their son, Sonny Dowling. All doing well.

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.
