    The festive football continues in Merseyside this Saturday, as we head to The Marine Travel Arena to take on AFC Liverpool.

    The boys got the result an expectant Boxing Day crowd were wanting, by overcoming Prestwich Heys on Tuesday. Two goals from captain Tom Moore sent home the majority of the 4,833 inside Gigg Lane happy with three points as a late Christmas present.

    Highlights of that victory are available at our YouTube channel below.

    The win put some breathing space between us and Heys, who sat in third ahead of the game. Wythenshawe Town beating league-leaders Wythenshawe in the big derby game brought the summit into sight again, but brings Town closer to the top too.

    Every game matters, with points at a premium. AFC Liverpool sit in 19th with 32 points, and two wins in the last six. One of those was against Wythenshawe at the Marine Travel Arena, and are therefore not to be taken lightly.

    A win takes us top as we head into 2024. Get down to the game, the lads need your support. All your match information is below.

     
     

    This week in ‘Playing Away’ – placing the spotlight on the NWCFL, we caught up with AFC Liverpool stalwart and matchday PA Announcer Alan Harrison, to discuss all things “Affordable Football Club” Liverpool ahead of our clash this weekend.

    AFC Liverpool was formed in 2008 by 1,000 Liverpool FC fans who had become increasingly frustrated at the cost and difficulty in obtaining tickets for Premier League matches. The mooted ‘39th game’, in which Premier League fixtures would be played in different parts of the world, proved to be the final straw as it clearly highlighted that those who ran top flight football were more concerned with money than its fans.

    A website was created and, with the response being positive, work began to move to the next stage and create a steering group to make the club a reality. At the beginning of March 2008, AFC Liverpool was officially formed and it was made clear that the club was not in any way a response to the contentious ownership issue at Anfield or as a protest against Liverpool Football Club. It was a response to issues at the top end of football in general.

    Originally ground-sharing with Prescot Cables, and accepted into the North West Counties, they won 10 of their opening 11 games, consolidating their position in the league for the first three seasons. AFC Liverpool benefitted from clubs being demoted and expelled from the league in 2011, accepting their position in the Premier Division for the 2011-12 season.

    They stayed in the First Division North again until 2021, when the results of the two curtailed COVID seasons were used to re-structure the leagues. AFC Liverpool again benefitted from a strong set of results and resumed in the Premier Division from the 2021-22 season.
