Football anybody?

At the time of writing – only two games into to the new season for each of the 1st and 2nd XI -, we are pleased to report an influx of young signings and some promising early results. There have been 7 new additions this year who are regularly playing for the club. We would like to encourage all recent leavers to get in contact if you’re interested in playing. The 2nd XI have started the season with a bang with two wins in the league meaning they sit top of the Arthurian third division. One of those results beating old rivals Charterhouse in the league 4-1. The 1st XI have also started strongly currently sitting mid table in the Premier Division with a win against Brentwood but losing narrowly 2-1 to a very strong Bradfield side.


The Club regularly fields two teams on Saturdays throughout the season and competes in the Arthurian League, the Arthur Dunn Cup, the Junior League Cup and the AFA Senior Cup. As well as the two teams playing on a weekly basis, there is also some veterans (over 35’s) team which plays in the Derrick Moore Veteran's Cup.

The Club holds a regular training session on Wednesday evenings in St John’s Wood on 3G. Ages range from 19 upwards within the club. The standard of the Arthurian league is very strong but the club welcomes all abilities even if you were A and B leagues at school.

If you are interested in playing for the Club in the future, please contact James Tucker (I 2004-09) ( or Guy Williams (Rb 2008-11) (
