The Old Boys Football Club run 7 teams, 3 adult men's teams on Saturdays, all playing in the Essex Olympian League, a Sunday men's 1st XI playing in the Sceptre Sunday League and 3 men's Vets teams, also playing on Sundays in the Southend Borough Combination Veterans League.

Our Saturday 1st XI currently play at their highest level in the club's history, plying their trade in the Essex Olympian Premier Division and finishing runners-up in the 2023/24 season. The Reserves play in Essex Olympian Senior Division 2 and our recently resurrected Saturday A team (3rd XI) play in Division 5 of the EOFL. On Sundays we have 3 Vets teams, one being an over 50s side, providing a great opportunity for our older players to stay involved. The Sunday XI was restarted around 3 to 4 seasons ago and completed a very successful 2023/24 campaign by not only winning their division but also winning the Division 3 Cup. They were also runners-up in another cup.

Our home ground is at Garon Park where our 1st team and Reserves play on the fabulous 3G pitch, whilst all other teams play on the grass pitches. There is a café and a great clubhouse so why not pop over, support the Old Boys and have Bovril or a beer or two? There is a plan in progress to build a second 3G all-weather pitch at the venue which will be built to the standards required to allow the club further progress into an even higher League. Keep your eyes peeled! With so many local clubs having folded over the last 10-15 years, it's wonderful to see the Old Boys football club flourishing.

We have engaged with the Old Southendian Youth Football Club which includes lots of SHSB lads, to organise a proper system which will hopefully encourage them to move from youth football up to men's football once they are old enough. We also hope to rebuild our connection with the School and get the boys interested in playing for the club.

The Football Club website can be found at but is currently awaiting someone to run it. However, we can be found on Facebook and Instagram.
