On a Saturday the Clapham Old Xaverians plays Amateur Football, which is one of Europe’s biggest adult football leagues. Currently, the club has five teams that are active with its first XI placed in the 2nd division of the Seniors. The teams play in and around the area of London, while the higher leagues travel further afield. After matches, everyone returns to the clubhouse for a bite to eat and drinks.
Great Excitement after the Battlefield Trip
Everyone who could not make the Pilgrims the Somme June 2018 trip waiting with great excitement to hear all about the trip from those who were there. Frank Barretta, updated the news bullet as soon as he received any feedback and here are just some of the comment highlights. One of the club members felt that it was the best trip, he thought the battlefields were perhaps even more enjoyed than Normandy. He is confident that no one will ever forget the Somme terrain and the cemeteries on those misty days and for him, it was something incredible to see. Still, the mist of the bare Somme fields impressed most.
Everyone who did go on the trip to the Old Xaverians Club agreed that it was another triumph from start to finish. Everything was excellent from the hotel to the visited places. With near 40 Xaverians in attendance, the sites researched were more poignant. 95% hope another trip will take place in 2019 and that even more Old Xaverians Club members would be able to go.
