League ready to kick off the new season

The Lancashire and Cheshire AFL is well prepared for their 111th season which begins with some games in the top two divisions on August 17.

The league will have 88 teams in action in seven divisions providing football for a range of ages and abilities until the end of April 2020.

The new teams joining the league include Barr Hill, Hadfield Athletic, North Walkden, Denton Town, Salford Storm, Wythenshawe Wanderers and Altrincham Hale who it is hoped have been placed in divisions appropriate to their ability.

Rochdalians will be defending their Premier division title and Dom Doyle will be looking forward to their first venture into the Premier division.
