The 2019/20 season was historic for the club as the First Team started life in the non-league pyramid and competed in the North West Counties First Division North for the first time. After a slow start, we finished a creditable 8th in a campaign that was declared null and void by the FA due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
With our men’s reserves in the Cheshire League Division Two, our Ladies’ first team in the Liverpool County FA Women’s League, plus our Sunday men’s social team and a thriving juniors section with 14 teams, we looked forward to the resumption of football in the 2020/21 season with great optimism.
Prior to the start of the 2020/21 season, Stephen Palfrey was relieved of his duties as first team manager and David Tickle was appointed manager of Pilkington FC. He was joined by Lee Jenkinson as his assistant manager and Phil Marsh as player/coach, along with his father Steve who started his footballing career at Pilkington FC before becoming a professional at Preston North End FC.
Exciting times ahead.
