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

Champion weekend !
On a weekend when the 1st XI strengthened their title hopes with a convincing win at Albanian, the 2nd and 3rd XI's were crowned champions of Intermediate Division North and Division 1 North respectively.
The 2's knew before their double header that 4 points would clinch the title, but lost the first game against Bealonians by an early solitary goal. In the second game, they raced to a 3-0 lead before Beals hit back with two goals to set up a nervy finish before Salvos secured the points with a last minute goal. The title was secured as Manorians lost heavily to Parmiterians for their challenge to fall away.
Meanwhile, the 3rd XI were confirmed as Chapions without having to play as Vaughanians were unable to take all six points against Forza FC, who the 3s had beaten 4-1 in both games of a double header last week.
Congratulations to both teams and the management teams of Mark Coombes and Jamie Murphy of the 2s and Joe Young and Robin Tidd of the 3s.
