Newcastle Town

Altrincham Club Crest image

One of the more modern clubs, Newcastle Town from ‘The Potteries’ was formed in 1964.
They worked their way through Newcastle & District League and the Staffordshire County and Mid Cheshire League before settling and developing in the North West Counties League in 1987.

The club has a good reputation for giving managers a chance to build their squads and Alan Sides enjoyed six years in which his sides reached the runners up position.  Glyn Chamberlain and Ray Walker as a player-manager, followed on and continued to keep the club challenging at the top of the league. 

Newcastle Town was accepted as a senior club in their league but after Nigel Gleghorn had carried on a persistent challenge, it was Greg Clowes who was the manager who achieved the championship and promotion to The Northern Premier League in 2010. The club also achieved a very good first season at the higher level.

Consolidated is probably needed now in the Northern Premier League but the supporters of ‘The Castle’ will be looking forward to some exciting seasons.
