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

OSFC 1st Team - A very hard fought battle against Old Suttonians who are sitting 3rd in the Premier division (League above us) but unfortunately we lost 0-2 and they put the final nail in the coffin in the last kick of the game. We tried our best and played unbelievably well but just didn’t have our shooting boots on. We threw everyone forward for the last chance of the game but unfortunately they hit us on the counter and ended our hopes of progressing to the next round of the cup!
OSFC 2nd Team – A great 4-0 victory against Globe Rangers pushed them joint top of the league. They have hit the ground running this season and have adapted very well in this league.
OSFC 3rd Team – A tremendous game against a very good rival in Old Vaughanians. Behind for most of the game, the game was won with a wonderful long range effort 5 minutes from time, putting the 3s back on top of the league - 3 points clear of Vaughanians who have a game in hand but a vastly inferior goal difference.
OSFC 4th Team - a deserved win against Tolly's who were better than their league position would suggest. This young and energetic side is showing good potential in this league a big step up from last year.

RIP Gareth Taylor
We are sad to have learned of the recent passing of Gareth Taylor, a member of the first salvo squad to achieve promotion to, and play in, the AFC Premier Division in 1983-1984. Gareth was a poacher goalscorer who contributed on and off the field.
Our thoughts are with his family and friends at this sad time.
