Cammell Laird

Altrincham Club Crest image

Life as one of the country’s most consistent clubs must have been difficult to give up.
Cammell Laird Football Club had dominated The West Cheshire League with the most consistent and impressive record and their supporters were used to being the favourites for honours season after season.

So accepting promotion into the North West Counties League in 2004, ironically from the runners up position, gave the club and its manager, Ian Doran, a chance to test themselves at a higher level. Their achievements were outstanding, as two more championships brought promotion through their new league’s two divisions and into The Northern Premier League . In those two campaigns ‘The Liards’ scored 268 league goals while earning 189 points!

Two more successful seasons in the Northern Premier League gave the club a chance to experience football in their premier division. Maybe the rise through the divisions was too rushed, after taking time to settle Cammell Laird are now comfortable at the senior level and will never ever forget the fact they enjoyed one of the best ever charges up the non-league pyramid.
