The Past Pupils won 14 and drew one of their 20 league matches this season, leading their nearest rivals, Old Wilsonians, by five points. They last headed Division 1 in 2004.

Patrick Morrissey, Former National President /Chairman of the Football Club, proudly and rightfully declared: "Having won the Amateur Football Alliance Senior Cup last season, and now the Southern Amateur League top Division

Championship; it is arguable that Old Salesians FC are currently one of the strongest club sides in English amateur football."

You can read a fuller report, with several action photographs, on the website of the Southern Amateur League. You can also download a report by John Ward.
