Altrincham Club Crest image

Two famous true blue amateur clubs joined together to create Corinthian -Casuals and when amateurs and professionals were playing in very different competitions, the amateur club competed in the famous Isthmian League and attracted many quality players from the schools, universities and services.

I was particularly proud to have enjoyed a major part of my playing career with the club but when the amateur was abolished and all footballers were just players, Corinthian-Casuals were one of very few clubs who did not decide to pay their players and obviously it was difficult to remain competitive in senior non-league football.

Real football men such as Brian Wakefield, David Harrison and Geoff Hewitson have held the club together with dedicated helpers, many of whom such as Tony Slade played against the Casuals many times in their own career but admired the club’s principles.

Survival has been tough, but the club still promotes pure amateur football and the game throughout the country’s senior schools. Life in the Isthmian League is difficult, but the spirit is impressive and playing for a famous club is still considered an honour.  T.W.
