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 there is an extensive House League programme for those who are not in the main school teams.

The 1st XI enters the Boodles Cup (and were National Finalists in 2017) and the English Schools Trophy. Shrewsbury won the Boodles Cup in 2000 and 2010 and has also won the Midlands Independent Schools League and the Shropshire Schools Cup on several occasions.

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. Pre-season training takes place in August for the 1st XI and Under 15 Squads.

 Shrewsbury's footballing history dates 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. To view a copy of the original Laws of Football, please click here.


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.
