The team was founded in 2005 and plays in The Arthurian League, an Old Boys Public School League with several FA cup winners in its ranks. The side is made up of Old King’s Boys and selects from a number of leavers years.
The original team is in Division 1 and the 2nd XI, after only four years, have been promoted to Division 3 which demonstrates the excellent progress made by the club.
The club is always seeking new players to strengthen the 1st XI squad and also to join the new 2nd XI, so please do get in touch. A ladies’ team next?
Training takes place in Raynes Park every Monday with games on Saturday afternoons.
Pre-season training is starting on 5th August on Clapham Common and continuing through August until the start of the season in September.

Football – OKC v King’s 2020
January 4, 2020
Old King’s Football Club 1st Xl won the match against King’s 1st Xl 4-1.
Old King’s Club vs School
February 5, 2019
On Saturday, 5th of January, three old boys teams, including circa 40 old boys took on the School first, second and third XIs at West Barnes Lane at 11am. This was the first time that the old boys have managed to get three teams together for this fixture and we were very much looking forward to the event!
Football: Mid-Season Update
December 14, 2017
The 1st XI go into the Christmas break in the top half of the table thanks to a fine recovery following a fairly ignominious start to the season. Four of the first six games ended in defeat, including a 2-3 Arthur Dunn Cup first round loss at Eton, which left the OKs languishing in the relegation zone of the Arthurian League Premier Division. However, a six-game unbeaten run has seen the side climb the table steadily and progress to the last-16 of the AFA Senior Cup for only the second time in our history. Wins against Old Tonbridgians and Old Chigwellians (both 2-0) were coupled with hard-earned draws against Old Carthusians and in the return fixture against Tonbridge while progress in the cup was secured with a 2-1 victory over Old Bromleians and a 5-1 dismantling of UCL Academicals.
The side has been led for the second year running by Alex Angel (OK 2010) and he has been ably assisted by the senior player group of Ben Harries (2008), Oly Hewitt (2011), Jack Stevenson (2011) and Nick Perry (2003). Perry is far from being the only “veteran” in the side as Andy Tyler (2001) has has a fine season in goal and Jonny Corbett (2002) has embarked on a record-equalling 11th consecutive season in the 1st XI. Centre-back George Dunne (2013) and forward Barney Oates (2011) have come into the squad this season to prove that there is a bright future for the club.
The 2nd XI also find themselves with 12 points from nine games and looking up the Division 2 table rather than down. Solid victories against Old Harrovians II (2-1), Old Lancing II (3-1) and Old Carthusians III (2-0) were interspersed with losses against Old Carthusians II (twice), Old Alleynians (1-3), Old Etonians II (1-3) and regrettable last minute defeat in the return fixture vs Harrovians (1-2). The OKs saved their best until last, though, when they faced an Eton side who had only lost once all season, including a 3-1 victory against us in September, and ran out 3-0 winners following an inspired performance.
Ramon Selvakumaran (2007) is in his fifth year as 2nd XI captain and is ably supported by vice-captians Charlie Westcott and Maz Tappuni (both 2005). There is a blend of youth and experience across the rest of the squad with regular players ranging from 2002 leavers through to 2013 leavers.
The 3rd XI mid-season report reads “room for improvement” as they find themselves at the foot of Division 5 South. An unkind fixture list left the side with a run of very tricky games at the beginning of the season while some inconsistency in availability has meant some regular chopping and changing of personnel.
However, a much kinder post-Christmas fixture card and a new leadership team headed up by young captain Rory Desmond (2011) means that the side enter the New Year full of hope.
One notable development at the club this season has been, thanks to the ever-strengthening relationship with The School, the introduction of a number of school 1st XI players to the club. This has proved a real success with eight Upper Sixth boys representing the Old Boys throughout the Autumn Term with the most notable being Matt Burditt, who won the man of the match vote for all three XIs during his first five games for the club.

OK Football Club V The School
January 2, 2016
On January 2nd the annual match against the school took place at Kingsway, giving everyone a valuable opportunity to run off any festive over-indulgence! For the first time in the club’s history, our 2nd XI took to the pitch alongside the 1st team, which made for a great day with nearly 60 current and former pupils involved. The club is hugely appreciative of the support shown by the School and in particular the Director of Football Mark Culverhouse, who helped move the fixture from its Monday afternoon slot in April and has continued to show an incredible amount of support to the club as a whole.
The 1st XI ran out comfortable5-1 winners, while the 2nd XI’s 6-1 win did not accurately reflect what was a tight contest at times. Days like this are vital if the club is to continue its growth and we hope that many of the school’s talented young footballers will find their way into our ranks once their studies are completed.
Old Boy's Football Club – Fan's Day is here!
March 16, 2015
The KCS Old Boys Football Club would like to invite you to its annual ‘Fan’s Day’, to be held at Kingsway (formerly West Barnes Lane) on Saturday March 28th.
The Old Boys FC are celebrating their 10th year in existence and have grown from strength to strength during the past decade. With 2 teams up and running successfully within the Arthurian League, we hope that we will be able to put on a real footballing feast! Over the past few years, Fan’s Day has provided plenty of people associated with both the school & the football club with a fantastic and unique chance to meet old and new acquaintances, while also giving us a chance to say thank you for your continued support.
Across the two squads, we are proud to represent over 15 years’ worth of school leavers, so there is a very good chance that you will know somebody out there!
Please feel free to bring any friends/family (a couple of beers…) and enjoy some cracking amateur football back at West Barnes Lane. Similar to last year, we hope to have the current Headmaster, members of the Old Boys Club and representatives from the Arthurian league all in attendance and will be heading to the Village for some drinks afterwards.
Format for the day is as follows:
12pm: KCS OB’s 2nd XI v Old Milfieldians 1st XI (JLC Semi Final)
2pm: KCS OB’s 1st XI v Old Etonians 1st XI (Arthurian League)
4:30pm: Tea/Drinks at the Hand in Hand, opposite the school
The 1st XI will be seeking revenge for their cup ¼ final defeat against Old Etonians 1st XI, who find themselves in a scrap to stay in the league’s top flight. The 2 sides are evenly matched and this should be a closely contested game.
The 2nd XI entertain Old Milfieldians in the semi-final or the Junior League Cup. It’s been an incredible reversal in fortunes for the 2nd XI this season and they will need plenty of support against a very strong Milfield side that are new to Arthurian football, with a spot at final’s day awaiting the winner…
