Football at Shrewsbury takes place mainly during the Michaelmas Term when almost all boys in the school play the game. There are 19 different School teams who play matches against other schools and an extensive house league programme for those who are not in the main school teams. The 1st XI enters both the Boodles Cup (which they won in 2000 and 2010) and the English Schools Trophy. The School has also won the Midlands Independent Schools League and the Shropshire Schools Cup on several occasions. Pre-season training takes place in August for the 1st XI and Under 15 Squads.

On the 100-acre site there are nine full-size grass pitches and an artificial Astroturf surface. Our 'Top Common' has full irrigation, which allows us to have first-class playing and training surfaces all year round.

Shrewsbury has a long and proud footballing history dating back to the origins of the sport. The oldest copy of the Laws of the Game in the world currently resides in the School's Moser Library, Salopians having played a prominent part in the meetings held to codify the game in the mid-19th century. Many of the early Salopian footballers often reached full international status, in the days before the game became professional. The Old Salopians have won the Arthur Dunn Cup on many occasions, including the first, fiftieth and centenary finals.


Forthcoming Football fixtures for the current term will be displayed below.

More detailed information about each of the fixtures can be found on our Sports Calendar. (Note: Viewing the Calendar either by Week or by Day gives you more information at a glance than the default monthly view.)

 If you are following a particular team or teams, you can also select their fixture list from the Football Fixtures and Results page, which includes team selections (where you see this blue image ) and location maps for away matches. It is possible to download a team's visture list onto your personal calendar on your PC or mobile device, which will then be synchronised with the master fixture list whenever your device is connected to the internet.
