Hyde FC

Altrincham Club Crest image

A wonderful 2011-2012 season brought The Championship and Promotion to the club, originally formed as Hyde FC in 1885, who changed to Hyde United in 1919 and in 2010 had returned to their original title.

Having worked their way through The Lancashire and Cheshire League (1919-1921)  and The Manchester League (1921-1930)  before settling in The Cheshire County League for thirty six years Hyde United were invited to become founder members of The Northern Premier League in 1968.

After two seasons ‘The Tigers’ dropped back to The Cheshire County League again after much strengthening on and off the field, Manager Les Sutton built a squad that moved steadily up the league and won promotion as Champions in 1981-982.

Since 1982 only one season has been spent below the Premier Division of The Northern Premier League. Relegation in 2000 was immediately remedied by manager Steve Waywell who inspired two consecutive promotions to take the club into The Conference North and now seven seasons later, Hyde FC have reached the top layer of Non-league football as a reward for sound development on and off the field.
