History of the Mid Cheshire Youth Football League

The League was formed in 1972. The intention was to provide organised football for local youngsters in the Under 13 category. In the first instance the League was constituted by teams representing the local villages in and around the Northwich and Winsford areas.

Over the years the League expanded to add Under 11 and Under 15 age sections. The popularity of the League meant that the area covered also increased to take in areas such as Middlewich, Holmes Chapel, Congleton and Knutsford.

As we entered the 90’s the success of the England side in Italia 90 provided the catalyst for a renewed interest in the sport. This manifested itself with the further expansion of the League adding Under 12 and Under 14 sections. By 1993 an Under 16 section had been added, the boundary had again expanded to take in clubs from Grappenhall, Frodsham and a large contingent from Macclesfield making the League one of the largest in the County. Twice the League tried to expand adding Under 17 and Under 18 sections but these have failed until 2001 with the successful addition of an Under 17 league.

In 1998 mini soccer was launched and has proved a major success providing 7-a-side football for boys and girls from Under 7 to Under 10. This version of the game continues to provide much enjoyment for all concerned, with its non – competitive approach the emphasis is very much on fun.
