Weston-Super-Mare

Altrincham Club Crest image

After their formation in 1899, Weston-super Mare Football Club took the straightfoward route for any club in the West of England. Membership of the county league, which in their case was The Somerset League, was followed by a move up through The Western League until, as Champions with 110 goals and 98 points,‘The Seagulls’ certainly deserved the chance to test themselves in the senior competition.

After eleven seasons in The Southern League Division One, in which the club finished outside the top ten on three occasions, Weston certainly deserved promotion with manager Frank Gregan in charge of playing matters.

The timing was just right as the new Conference North and South were formed in 2004 and Weston-super Mare just qualified in 10th place in the Southern Premier League. However, it hasn’t been easy to establish safety in Conference South although, after eight tough campaigns, the next two produced middle of the table finishes and the club’s best finish of 7th was achieved in 2013.
