Salisbury City

Altrincham Club Crest image

A relatively young club was formed in 1947 when they joined the Western League. The developing years showed steady improvement and they won the Western title in 1957-1958 and 1960-1961 before moving on to The Southern League in 1968.

Early days in the senior competition proved difficult, but Geoff Butler took over as manager in 1983 and, in his seventeen seasons, the club showed great consistency but until 1995 they had remained in the Southern Division. After promotion as Champions, ‘The Whites’ found the senior competition an annual battle until relegation came in 2002.

With Nick Holmes now in charge, the leagues re-organization saw Salisbury City playing in the Isthmian League for one season followed by a return to The Southern Premier and an immediate championship with promotion to Conference South.

Off field worries did disturb the club who had previously enjoyed steady leadership, but City have powered their way into The Conference Premier as Champions in 2013.
