Sharjah Wanderers â€˜Old Boysâ€™ Football Section which was formerly known as the Fat Old Boys is made up of a group of eager footballers. Most of which are well into their 30â€™s with a variety of level and fitness. Due to the growing number of veteran players, we could no longer play together with the younger generation and so we split away from the youngsters some two years back, and once again became our own club. From the small humble beginnings , we have now grown into a fairly large club of over 40 Club Members and Non-Members. The majority of us have lived in or within Sharjah for a large part of our adult lives and coming from all walks of life, we get together every Sunday and Wednesday between 8-10pm for a social but competitive game of either 5, 6, 7 or 11-a-side depending on the turn out which varies.
After a few years of twice-weekly football among each other we came to realisation that if a little effort was put in, we could take this team and put ourselves on the National radar. So in the summer of 2013, some of the regular players put their heads together and our official football team as we know it today was formed, SHARJAH WANDERERS OLD BOYS.
Sharjah Wanderers â€˜Old Boysâ€™
Our SWOB (Sharjah Wanderers Old Boys) Committee have been working very hard to get our team organised and run like a football club whilst sticking to our true roots of being friendly and social. Sponsored by National Paints, we now have a Home & Away kit and we try to participate in as many tournaments as feasibly possible both on home soil or away. Depending on the tournament format, we usually register 2 or three teams representing SWOB and try to even the teams out fairly between all the players who are available.
Furthermore, we also try to participate in 11-a-side friendly matches against other teams in the country, again both Home & Away.
As representatives of Sharjah Wanderers Sports Club, our SWOB Committee work very closely with Club Management in trying to help SWSC be the great club it is. By hosting family friendly fund raising events for various aspects of the club and good causes, were we try to create awareness for both the Club and our Football Team. Since we are being provided by the great facilities the club has to offer we always strive to give back and help in anyway we can to allow the club to thrive.
