Old Meadonians go from strength to strength

As Arsenal's champion's league challenge falters it is a local team that now looks more likely to have a full trophy cabinet this season

Old Meadonians Football Club was formed in 1929 with pupils, staff and former pupils of the former Chiswick County Grammar School for Boys eligible for membership. Seventy four years on the club is open and firmly community based, running nine teams in the Amateur Football Combination, one of the largest football leagues in the country.

Home games are played on Riverside Lands Dukes Meadows and social activities including the entertainment of visiting teams and officials take place at the Riverside Club on the corner of Staveley Road and Burlington Lane. Facilities at the clubhouse have recently been modernised enabling the facilities to be hired out for private functions.

The football club still maintains very close ties with Chiswick Community School, and makes donations to the school to help it in its sporting activities. They will also be running discos for the students. Among other community based activities undertaken is an annual colts football festival which takes place at Easter.

In the last two seasons they have won back to back premier division championships and our name has joined that of Ipswich Town, Corinthian Casuals in the amateur Football Alliance Senior Cup. This season the first team is already in two cup finals.

If you feel you would like to be a member of this progressive and friendly club why not get in touch with chairman David Tyler on OMFCSlipper@aol.com or visit their website www.omfc.co.uk
