Burnham

Altrincham Club Crest image

After competing in local home counties competitions until 1971, Burnham joined The Athenian League and immediately challenged for honours under the managership of Malcolm Higton who was later to become an enthusiastic chairman.

However, it was Mick Jones who was in charge when The Athenian League closed down and ‘The Blues’ moved into London Spartan League football and immediately won the championship and promotion to the Southern League, where for two years they competed as Burnham & Hillingdon. 

Reverting to Burnham FC, the club enjoyed an encouraging spell under new manager Colin Barnes, but the pressures of Southern League football eventually proved too much and Burnham dropped back to The Hellenic league for a four year rebuilding excercise. Shane Chandler took over as manager from Andy Lyne and the squad proved good enough to win the Hellenic championship and promotion back to The Southern League where the club has enjoyed its football.
