The OM Football Club
Contact: Joseph Hare - firstname.lastname@example.org
Since its launch in 2008, the OMFC have gone from one fixture against the school each year, to entering the Arthurian League and, in the 2012-13 season, the Arthur Dunn Cup, with great success! A disciplined and motivated team, with some strong leadership from Joe Hare and Dan Black, has paid off handsomely.

The OM Football Club took on Arthurian League giants, the Old Carthusians on Saturday 2nd March in the semi-final of the Arthur Dunn Cup. The first half ended in a draw but the second half saw the Premier League OCs take charge of the field and score three goals over the next half hour. A further two goals in the final few minutes of the game resulted in a 5-0 defeat for the OMFC, but nevertheless our Boys have made huge progress through in both the Arthurian League and the Arthur Dunn Cup, which they entered for the first time this year. Many parents and other OMs supported the teams, and we enjoyed a fabulous match tea with the help of former Dame of Preshute, Margaret Rose, who volunteered her good offices.
The following Saturday, 9th March, they played the Old Carthusians second team, which is still a very strong team and honour was restored with 4-3 victory to the OMFC.

Great Start to Football Season.
Festive season over, it was time to concentrate on another important season: the Football Season. Despite a near 100% record, OMs trailed the league leaders going into the New Year by 3 points having played a game less. The team could afford no slip ups. The Old Foresters provided the first test… more.
OMFC Cruise through.
The OMs cruised through to the quarterfinals of the Arthur Dunn Cup on Saturday 1st December, easily seeing off an Old King's Scholars side two divisions above them. An early goal from Will Harvey, followed good work form Niall Alcock down the right, as he turned a low cross past the keeper making it 1-0. Shortly after, his brother Harry popped up with a tidy finish to make it 2-0. As half time approached, the OMs extended their lead as Harry Harvey found space on the left to send a scintillating ball across to Jack Webb, playing in a more advanced role, unmarked in the box to head home to make it 3-0.
The OKS team had one chance on goal - a lobbed effort drifting wide - but they never threatened the OM goal again. The defence held firm and the midfield tidied up any loose balls. The OMs went into half time having played the best football they'd played all season. The OKS side lost two players to injury and with no subs played out the rest of the match down to 9 men. Cue a goal fest and further efforts from Webb, Hamilton, Harvey and Alcock made the score 7-0 at the final whistle!
All good things come to an end.
A 100% record in both league and cup was considered by some too good to be true. Sadly for the Old Marlburian Football team, Saturday afternoon at Aldenham proved to be the end.... more
Could a Cup upset be on the cards?
Read Charlie Allen’s excellent report of their dramatic victory of the Old Westminsters on Saturday 27th October.
Sir Alex Ferguson once wisely commented: “If we can play like that every week we’ll get some level of consistency.” Consistency was definitely something the OMs had been achieving. 15 points from 15 in the league the evidence. It was now the time to focus that consistency on the cup. The opposition: Westminsters XI. A team two leagues above with an unbeaten start to the season awarding them top of the table status. Could a cup upset be on the cards? ...more

OMFC v College Experience Shows - 08/09/2012 - MATCH REPORT
On 8th September 2012, the OMs dramatically defeated the College on the XI pitch. The first XI played well but the experience, fitness and size of the OMs was to their advantage. The game started with both squads chasing the ball and attempting a ‘Route One’ strategy with little success. The OMs knew they could play better football, having put on a clinical display in the second half versus the Old Malvernians midweek, and slowly began to settle into their game.

OMs v Old Malvernians - 04/09/2012 - MATCH REPORT
A cliché it might be, but this really was a game of two halves. On a balmy Tuesday evening in central London, the OMs played their penultimate pre season fixture before the 2012/2013 season kicks off. With some new faces to the ranks, the bare 11 took to the field to face the Old Malvernians who ply their trade in the dizzy heights of Division 1. We knew it was going to be tough and so it proved to be. more...
OMFC – Holland Tour

First Game of the Season 2012 - Match Report
The first pre-season game of the 2012-13 campaign started reasonably brightly as an OM XI made it's way to Godalming to play an OC team made up of a mixture of 1st, 2nd and 3rd XI players - no easy task when the temperature (alledegly circa 30 degrees) and the lack of resources (the bare eleven!) combined.
