Eastwood Town

Altrincham Club Crest image

A comparatively young club, being formed in 1953, Eastwood Town certainly gave the impression of a very well run club, obviously supporting their managers consistently and also steadily improving their playing record.

The club obviously benefitted from terrific work from managers Bill Jeffrey, Bryan Chambers and Paul Cox who looked after the club for all but five of our featured years and Mel Oliver also stayed for three years.

The club steadily worked their way up from local leagues, joined the new Northern Counties East League in 1982 and qualified for The Northern Premier League in 1987.
Twenty two years of membership were only disturbed by one season back in the Northern Counties East in 2003-2004.

This relegation seemed to give the club a new challenge and their NPL place was regained immediately. Then three years later promotion was gained to The Premier Division and ‘The Badgers’ were obviously playing as well as ever, when they won the Northern Premier League championship and a place in The Conference North.

Sadly, after qualifying for the play offs in 2011, the club was not allowed to compete as their facilities were not considered up to the required Conference Premier standard. The club appeared to outsiders to have had its heart broken and after many personnel changes in three years and another relegation, it will take a great team effort by those who really care for the club to get over those disappointments.
