Isthmian league Division One North

Altrincham Club Crest image

For a club formed in 1900 and having spent all but two years of their last thirty five in The Isthmian League, Tilbury certainly varied their competitions in their formative years:-

Grays & District
South Essex 1927-1931

South Essex Combination (Wartime)

Corinthian 1950-1957
Delphian 1962-1963
Athenian 1963-1973

As an Isthmian club, ‘The Dockers’ have experienced a tough time but they remained loyal until finishing bottom of the Division One North in 2004. The club then changed ‘families’ by joining the Southern League, but another disastrous season saw them drop back to the Essex Senior League.

However, Tony Cross returned for a second spell as Manager and promotion was immediately gained from a third place finish and Tilbury returned to The Isthmian League in 2006. After five more seasons of ‘consolidation,’ the club’s highest position for twenty five years was achieved in 2012, when Paul Vaughan’s side finished in third place in The Isthmian League Division One North.
