The Anfield area of Liverpool is nestled in football history and that’s where we head on Saturday.
Andy Welsh’s side face Lower Breck, who played just under a mile away from the home of Liverpool. It was a 1-1 draw last time out against Longridge, the goal coming from Benito Lowe who scored started his first game since his return from injury.
The players have had a well-earned rest with no game in midweek, so two sessions in training this week to prepare for this fixture.
Former Clitheroe player Ben McKenna joined the club last week and you can hear from him speaking to Adam Clark below.
In Opposition – Lower Breck
Lower Breck Football Club was founded in the summer of 2010 in the Tuebrook area of Liverpool. The aim on formation was to establish a youthful group of quality, committed players capable of challenging for honours in all future competitions in the years to come.
In the club’s first season they took the South Liverpool 2010/11 Youth Division Title which was a great achievement at the first time of asking. For the 2011/12 season, the club took on the challenge and step up in quality and moved to the highly respected Carlsberg West Cheshire Association Football League.
In the season that followed the club created history winning the West Cheshire League Title, The West Cheshire Youth Plate and The LCFA County Cup. History was made as no other club from the West Cheshire League had ever got their hands on the treble.The club was also been nominated for Merseyside Team of the Year 2011/12.
Again not wanting to stand still the club for the 2012/13 season joined forces with the highly respected and fast-growing Famous Grapes Football Club. The lads in their first season as an open-age side became a member of the Liverpool County Premier League’s 2nd Division. In keeping with tradition the lads won the 2nd Division title another remarkable achievement as this was their first year in adult football.
Not settling for just a domestic trophy the club embarked on a European Tour when they travelled over to Cologne Germany to take part in the 2013 Rheintal Trophy and in doing so brought home the winner’s trophy capping another trophy-led season for the lads.
For the 2013/14 season the club played their football in the Liverpool County Premier League’s 1st Division as Lower Breck FC. With hard work and dedication the club was aiming to be playing Premier League football the following season and that aim was realized when the lads clung on to the last remaining promotion spot.
With the step up to the Premier Division secured the club looked to secure their position amongst the very best the city had to offer and build a squad capable of challenging for a league title in the forthcoming years.
For the start of the 2015/16 season Lower Breck had grown from the one team the Moore family founded back in 2010 to the club now running five playing sides.
A Reserve, Sunday and two youth sides have all been added to the clubs roster of teams playing under the Breck Banner.
With the addition of these sides Lower Breck set their focus on growing into a strong established club and with growth on/off the field and the club pushed full steam ahead. In the 2016/17 season the Breck secured a domestic cup double winning the highly respected I-Zingari & George Mahon Cups.
In the 2017/18 season the club raised the bar even further and achieved greatness in Liverpool by winning all four competitions they played in and also going unbeaten throughout the whole campaign with a run stretching back to October 2016.
LCPL, LCFA, George Mahon & I-Zinagri Cup Champions a truly remarkable feat that some massive clubs in Liverpool never managed to achieve.
Lower Breck FC have made the swift transition from Youth side to North West Counties affiliated member Club in under 10 years.
