Veteran Visitors from Italy come to E17

Sep 13, 2016 - Veteran Visitors from Italy come to E17

An Italian Vets team travelled from Jesi in central Italy for a friendly against our over 45s at Douglas Eyre last Saturday. It was a good game of football from both sides but the Italian silky skills and passing was too much for us. Nonetheless it was a great show of friendship and we hope to return the compliment by taking a team to Italy at the end of our season.

1st Team end the season in style

May 15, 2016 - 1st Team end the season in style

The 1st team beat premier League Champions Hamptonians 1-0 in a well contested LOB Senior Cup Final. A goal from leading goalscorer Dave Stevens was enough to take their second cup of the season. Winning their last game 9-0 against Aloysians in the league we only secured runners up spot to Wokingians being undefeated in the league and losing just once in the whole season. It was a superb performance from the whole squad. Manager Peter Omondi and Coach Lee Okugbeni played a major part in turning the fortunes of the 1st team around after relegation last season. We look forward to next season with relish.

R.I.P. Arthur Linton

Apr 27, 2016 - R.I.P. Arthur Linton

I have to report the sad news that one our Old Parmiterians Stalwarts, Arthur Linton passed away yesterday morning after a long battle with cancer. He was a very popular and jovial character always having a joke or a laugh especially before and after games. He was a great person to be around and will be sorely missed by those who knew him and especially those who played with him. Funeral arrangements can be obtained from me or Brian Robinson. Arthur is centre of team photo with cup Francis Mariani Hon Sec

Apr 25, 2016 - 1st X1 win Old Boys Senior Cup

After a wait of nearly 6 years the 1st team found their way through a tough game with Parkonians to win the Cup 3-2 with the winning goal from James Hudson coming 10 minutes from time. In the end it was a well deserved win and cheered the OP Society supporters who braved the cold to be there. Well done to the whole sqaud and Peter and Lee who run the team to turn around the fortunes after relegation last season. The team is also promoted back to the Premier Division and now looks forward to battles to win the championship and The LOB Senior Cup on 11 May when they play Old Hamptonians at Dulwich Hamlet FC

6th X1 retain AFA Cup

Mar 9, 2016 - 6th X1 retain AFA Cup

Aaron Spencer and his 6th team repeated the feat of last year by again beating Civil Service 5-3 aet in another nailbiting game. The team had to comeback twice and again Civil Service equalised in the last minute of normal time as they did last year but this time we prevailed 5-3 in extra time. Well done to the whole squad on a great performance. The 3rds were a shade unlucky against Winchmore Hill in their AFA final having chances to take the lead. Despite the defeat it was an historic achievement to reachthis AFA final for the first time. So again a well done to Dan and his squad.
