Another Football Success
The Old Salesians (Battersea) Football Club has ended the season at the top of Division 1 of the Southern Amateur League. They clinched their position with a 2-0 win over Old Owens on May 7th.
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."
