Metropolitan Police

Altrincham Club Crest image

In a club whose name is a little confusing, as the players do not necessarily have to be serving policemen, steady development and good coaching has enabled the club to enjoy its best ever position within the structure of non-league football.

After kicking off in 1919, periods were spent with The Spartan League (1928-1960) and The Metropolitan League (1960-1971) before joining the Southern League in 1971.

Six years later The Police were playing in The Isthmian League and finishing as runners-up in Division Two.They have since enjoyed an impressive 36 consecutive years competing in the famous competition.

All the campaigns until 2011-2012 had been fought out in the Isthmian League’s lower levels, so the Division One South Championship success was particularly well received by all connected with the club.’The Blues’ have hit the headlines in The FA Cup First Round on a couple of occasions but life in the Premier Division will give The Metropolitan Police Football Club and their long serving manager Jim Cooper, the extra publicity that will be appreciated.
