Poynton Club History

Poynton FC, founded as Poynton Amateurs Football Club in 1883, are proud to be the town’s representative football club. Our ground at Poynton Sports Club has entertained generations since Lord Vernon donated the land to the community as a multi-sports complex.

Few records of the club exist prior to the 1970s, however a decade of success saw our club rise from Lancashire & Cheshire league Division 3 in 1970 to Division 1 Champions in 1985.  In the same season we also lifted the Stockport Senior Cup and added the Cheshire Aggregate Cup.  This success prompted us to join the Mid Cheshire League in 1986. The last twenty five years has seen our club establish itself with both the first XI and Reserves in the Mid-Cheshire League (now Cheshire League).  Since 2001 the first XI have finished Division 1 runners-up twice, won the Presidents Cup twice and won a hat trick of Stockport Cups. Our Reserves won the Macclesfield & District Cup in 2001-02 and successive Mid-Cheshire League Cups in 06/07 & 07/08.  In 2011 we introduced a Youth Team, playing in the East Cheshire Sunday FL, establishing a fundamental link between our junior football teams and adult football.  Our Youth Team has quickly established itself winning successive promotions and winning the Division 2 2013/14 title.

2013/14 became one of our most successful league campaigns losing just one match on our way to becoming champions of the Cheshire League Division 2.
