OS Footballers celebrate mixed fortune

Monday 20 May 2019

Once again the Warrington Hotel provided the venue for the OS Football Club end of season dinner on 10th May for Salopian footballers and an intrepid band of OS Ladies.

In true Salopian fashion, the Director found himself assigned the guest speaker role at 45 minutes notice, coming off the subs’ bench in place of dinner regular, Matthew Clark. But it gave him a welcome opportunity to cast aspersions on the organisational skills of some of his House magisterial charges, one of whom had wisely decided to absent himself.

Under the expert eye of the OSFC secretary, James Tucker, the mixed triumphs and disasters of the season were recounted by 1st XI captain, Oliver Heywood (S 01-06), 2nd XI captains, Will Taylor (O 05-10) and Al Hutchinson (PH 04-09), and a fitting tribute was paid to the outgoing President, Simon Goodman (R 78-83) who hands over to Richard McGarry (Ch 01-06) after many years of stalwart service.
