With silverware finally making its way to the Old Albanian cabinet after lifting the much-coveted DW Trophy, along with achieving promotion in what was a fragmented and challenging season, the OAs knew that maintaining momentum was key. 

The season’s targets, as laid out in the pre-season AGM - whilst ambitious - were clear. To achieve back-to-back promotion whilst retaining the silverware the 2020/21 cohort managed to ‘bring home’. At the time of going to print, the Club is delighted to report, fresh off the back of a hard fought three points away to Old Harrovians, a perfect start with five wins and 15 points out of a possible 15. Whilst the early season gains and performances on the pitch are promising, it’s important to also reflect as we draw ever closer to the previously implausible milestone of the 200th Old Albanian to play for the Club since its rebirth in 2017. 

A fitting testament to the spirit that underpins the Club comes straight from our principal sponsor, OA and founder of Hertfordshire-based grounds maintenance and landscape design company, Olympic Gardens: Bryn Edwards (OA 2012). Bryn, who was also a player in that early 2017 side, when asked about his continued investment in the Club had the following to say: 

“I have a huge love for OAs and the post-school connections. The legacy of being an OA stays with you through school, past sport and remains for a lifetime.’’ 

With that in mind, and with big plans for the 2021/22 season ahead, as always we encourage all OAs, whether social members or keen players, to get in touch as we embark on a journey both on and off the pitch.
