OT Football Club Report

After a strong Club wide performance in the 2021/22 season, the 2022/23 results have been disappointing for the OT Football Club. However the recruitment and off field camaraderie continue to be exceptionally strong and the Club remains a thriving OT community. 

The season started badly when summer train strikes meant several cancelled pre-season games and the 1st & 2nd XIs starting the season cold. This showed for both teams with bad losses occurring in September & October getting the season off on the wrong foot. One stand out performance was a 6-5 victory for the 1st XI against Old Carthusians - new recruit Rory Wade (remember the name) scoring a last minute winner in front of the away support. Special. 

Despite some excellent performances, too many late dropped points meant the 1st XI were relegated from the Premier Division for the first time in 8 years. A similar season unfolded for the 2nd XI with an exciting Cup run to the Semi-Finals but some disappointing league results in between. 

With no Veteran league anymore, the OT Vets team don’t have as many games as previously but still get a strong team out when needed. With several very successful OT footballers now nearing the required age of 35, the Vets are sure to be a serious force in the next few years. 

My thanks to Alex Holder, Nicolas Bryan & Dixie Cook for Captaining the 1st, 2nd & Vets XI respectively, as well as the ever giving Chairman, James Mitchell. We shall be back with a vengeance next year.
