Altrincham Club Crest image

When United were formed in 1946, a second senior club in the Oxfordshire town was considered a challenge by those whose loyalty lay with the ‘Town’ club’, who were already over 50 years old.

After a spell in the North Berkshire League,‘United’ joined The Hellenic League in 1958 and remained in the competition where they became one of the most consistent Premier Division clubs, only spending one campaign in Division One.

Most managers were given time to build their own squads, with good runs enjoyed by Graham Clark and Ray Hayward, but it was Andy Slater in the 2005-2006 season that led ‘the ‘U’s’ to promotion into The Southern League from third place and ahead of their Town rivals.

Sadly, after seven seasons at the higher level, the club resigned from The Southern League and returned to The Hellenic League.
