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 3rd/4th December

1st Team – Quarter Final action saw the 1's host Old Carthusians I from Guilford. The game got off to an entertaining start with both teams creating chances. Unfortunately, Old Salvos were 2-0 down at half time but with one goal, we would have been right back in it. The second half started well as we picked up our intensity but as we pushed more and more for the goal, we left ourselves exposed at the back before falling away to lose by 5 without response.

 

2nd Team – hosted Albanian II’s who are doing well in the league this season. The game was very much end to end at the beginning but neither team had any clear-cut chances. The tackles started to fly in as the frustration grew from both teams. The second half was a great battle between the two teams as they both created chances, but no one could break the deadlock. There was a goal line clearance from Old Salvos near the end of the game and then went up the other end, but still didn’t manage to score what would be a deciding goal. Great game between 2 very good teams. 

 

3rd Team – After their win last week, there was a big buzz around. They faced Enfield Old Grammarians this week but there were a few key players missing. The game started and Old Salvos enjoyed majority of the ball but had nothing going forward and couldn’t make the most of their possession. Then, on a breakaway, Enfield took the lead. The lads didn’t let this get to them as they battled back and tried to find that equaliser, but they couldn’t find the back of the net. As they pushed for the goal, Enfield secured the win with another breakaway goal.

 

4th Team – With 4 pull outs on the day, the 4th Team travelled to Mill Hill to face Albanian IV with 9 men. The lads knew it was going to be a tough game and a lot of extra work/running was needed to make sure they gave themselves a fighting chance and boy did they put in a shift! The game finished 3-2 but every single player deserves praise as this was a proper team performance. They gave Albanians a great game and pushed them right until the final whistle.

 

Vets Team (Over 35’s) – The Vets were finally back in action after a few weeks of bad weather! All the lads were itching to get back on the pitch as well as trying to progress to the next round of the cup. From the first whistle, Salvos were strong taking the lead early on. From this moment on there was absolutely no stopping the lads who were completely dominant and could have scored more. They steamed away from the oppo after putting 8 goals past them in the game. Goals from Joe Young, Giles Abraham, Mark Burges, James Burges, Ivan and Ferdinand. MOTM was Jack Rowley who was influential in their superb victory. Game finished 8-2!
