Congleton Town will also encompass Congleton Vale Rovers and Congleton Rovers following the launch of a merger between the clubs.
After the plans were announced last month, the following was said in an official statement today: “The football provision in the town has historically been disjointed, with individual clubs working separately and without a defined structure for juniors to move through the age groups and into local senior football. This new working arrangement will provide this structure and offer a significant incentive for ambitious juniors looking to represent their local team ultimately at senior level.
“The merged club will operate boys’ and girls’ teams from Under-7s, through the age groups to Under-18s, and then combine its senior football with an academy team, reserves, the semi-professional first team and a veterans team.”
In addition, former Manchester City defenders Ian and David Brightwell, who come from the town, have agreed to become club ambassadors.
