Altrincham Football Club
Centenary Events


In 1903, Broadheath F.C. moved from their own neighbourhood, which lies a mile or so north of Altrincham town centre, to play their games at Pollitt's Field, which was located about 200 yards west of the current Moss Lane ground of Altrincham F.C.. With the change of ground came a change of name to Altrincham Football Club and it is the anniversary of this event which the Club is to commemorate throughout this season.

The history of Altrincham F.C. is here. For more on Pollitt's Field and Altrincham's first games there, click here.
