Vauxhall Motors

Altrincham Club Crest image

A relatively young club, having been formed in 1963, Vauxhall Motors Football Club certainly experimented with the local leagues before settling in The North West Counties League in 1987. The club had passed through The Ellesmere Port League, The Wirral Combination and The West Cheshire League (twice) but promotion to The Northern Premier League in 2000, after a five year spell in North West Counties, has seen the club enjoy its most successful period so far.

In four campaigns under the guidance of Manager Alvin McDonald, the club won promotion from The North West Counties and The NLP Division One before challenging at the top of The NLP Premier Division with finishes of Second and Third.

In the same period, a wonderful run to the FA Vase Semi-Final was experienced in 1999-2000, followed by FA Cup appearances in The Second Round Proper in 2002-2003 and The First Round in 2004-2005, after Qualifying for Conference North in 2003-2004.

Since those special years the club has found life tough, but after nine seasons with a best finish of 11th, ‘The Motormen’ are still enjoying Conference North football.
