To those of us outside Manchester, the idea of football club inspired by their members whose love of a world famous name is a romantic story that needs a happy ending.

Well, the support and enthusiasm is still very much apparent and Karl Marginson has been their successful manager since the club’s first games in The North West Counties League in 2005

After winning Division Two and Division One in consecutive seasons the Northern Premier League Division Two saw them drop all the way down to the runners-up position to gain another promotion!

The Northern Premier League Premier Division has proved a little tougher, but apart from a lapse in 2009-2010 the club have always finished in the top six and one feels there is more excitement and progress to come.
