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 Bushey Sports & Social Ground (formerly Metropolitan Police Sports Club), Aldenham Rd, Bushey, Hertfordshire WD23 2TR

OSFC 1’s – Started well going 0-1 up in the first 10 minutes but a very sloppy end to the half with a few errors saw Salvos 3-1 down. A very deflated second half and another few defensive mistakes resulted in a disappointing 6-3 loss after some recent good results.
OSFC 2’s – A nice trip to Watford’s training ground for the 2’s this week as they faced UCL in the league. During a tough, gruelling game, the boys kept it together and brought home a very well deserved 3 points giving hope for a late promotion charge.
OSFC 3’s – Postponed due to waterlogged pitch
OSFC 4’s – Postponed due to waterlogged pitch
OSFC 5’s – A local trip against mid table side Old Kingsburians, never easy against local rivals. And so it turned out. An absolute cracker of a match as only 1 goal separated the teams in an 11 goal thriller. A great 6-5 win for the lads puts them TOP OF THE LEAGUE. With 10 more games to go, a top 2 finish is definitely on the cards.

We are sad to advise the Cliff, former player and brother to former players Ron and Gary, passed away on the 12th January.
Cliff's funeral will be on the 7th February at 11.45 am at Breakspear Crematorium, Ruislip followed by a reception at Harrow Weald Memorial Club.
The family have asked that there are no flowers but any donations to be to Harefield hospital in Cliff's memory. A donation page is being set up with details to be posted when advised.
Our sympathies are with the Hays family at this time.
Social news - The tour is back!
The club will be visiting Lisbon for the usual round of cultural delectation and wisdom.
It has been moved to the first May bank holiday weekend, 8-11 May 2020. Final cost will depend on numbers and flights, so the club is looking for £100 - it's not too late! Let Dan Forde know directly or by email on email@example.com
