History

Saltney Town Football Club is a football club within the town of Saltney, on the border between England and Wales. The club was formed in 2010 by two friends from the Saltney area, Marc Edwards and Andrew Johnson. Both have the ultimate vision of bringing their community together through football. The club are also known by their nickname of “The Bordermen”, due to where they are situated.

In their debut season, the Bordermen were victorious in both the League Cup, and the prestigious Horace Wynne Cup, beating Llanuwchlyn and Castell Alun in the respective finals. They also finished 3rd in their league, Welsh National Division 1.

Previous History

The first record of a Saltney-based football club was in 1908 when they joined The Combination.

The Combination was originally composed from clubs from Manchester and Liverpool and their environment. In later years, several Welsh clubs joined. One club, Northwich Victoria, earned admission to the Football League as members of The Combination. This League ran from 1890-1911.

Saltney had a fantastic first season in the league finishing in 2nd place, Tranmere Rovers finished 3rd! We are uncertain on what happened after the league disbanded in 1911.

In the 1919-20 season, Saltney-based side Crichton’s Athletic was a founder member of Cheshire County League. In 1921, the side changed their name to Saltney Athletic. In 1923, the side finished in 6th position before leaving the Cheshire County League.

The history becomes a little hazy from then until the 1974-75 season when Saltney Social became founder members of Clwyd Football League, where they played for two seasons.

For the 1992-93 season, Saltney Community Centre was formed. They entered the Clwyd League system in Division 1. A great start resulted in a 3rd play finish and instant promotion to the prestigious Clwyd Premier Division.

In their first effort at the Clwyd top flight they finished in a very respectable 2nd place before going one better the following year, winning the League and being duly promoted to the Welsh Alliance League.

In their two seasons in the league they finished in 6th, then 11th positions before resigning from the Alliance in 1998.
