FC Halifax Town

Altrincham Club Crest image

As Halifax Town the Yorkshire club were formed in 1911 and worked their way through The Yorkshire Combination (1911-1912) and The Midland League (1912-1921) before gaining entry to The Football League in 1921.

Relegation to the Conference brought about some changes in the club and after rebuilding, ‘The Shaymen’ returned to The Football League in 1998. Sadly after just four seasons, the club was relegated again and although Chris Wilder battled hard as manager of on field matters, the club disbanded after finishing twentieth in the Conference at the end of the 2007-2008 campaign.

The club reformed as F.C.Halifax Town and was accepted into Division One North of The Northern Premier League, where they won promotion in their second season. With Neil Aspen in charge, the club achieved a second successive championship and a place in Blue Square North. Then building on their encouraging form in 2011-2012, promotion to The Conference Premier was achieved in 2013 through the play-offs.
