For the upcoming 2021/22 league season, Stretford Paddock FC Firsts will now be competing in the Lancashire & Cheshire AFL Premier Division.
After the league campaign was cut short last season, Paddock finished 4th in Division 1 having only played 8 games. However, the league officials were impressed by the team’s efforts in our debut season and believed we deserved to be promoted to the top flight division.
Paddock’s first game in the Premier Division will see us face Moston Brook away from home on the 21st August, another team who has earned the right to move up from Division 1.
We played Moston back in October 2020, a tight affair which saw us lose 3-2. You can watch the highlights from that game here;
In addition to the First team moving up a league, Stretford Paddock Reserves will now compete in the Lancashire & Cheshire AFL Division 2.
Finally, our new Development squad will be competing in the Lancashire & Cheshire AFL Division A.
Everyone at Stretford Paddock FC is relishing in the opportunity so showcase our ability to compete in the Premier Division. Work ahead of the new is well underway and the players and staff can’t wait for the new campaign to kick-off.
