Football has been played in Tattenhall for more than 400 years; we know this as there was an outbreak of violence at a match in the village in 1617 and Constable Bruce was hit over the head with a 'short cudgel' when he tried to intervene!
The present pitch at Sport & Leisure Tattenhall was created with funds provided by the Parish Council in 2005/6 and was formally opened by Gary Speed, then of Bolton Wanderers and later Manager of Wales. It is a wonderful amenity; it is level, dries well and is one of the best in the area.
Both senior and junior football is played at Tattenhall: AFC Tattenhall plays in the Chester and District Sunday League on Sunday mornings, whilst Tattenhall U17s, in the Chester & District U17s League, plays on Sundays at 2pm, and trains Tuesday evenings.
Regarding junior football, we run regular training courses in conjunction with MPH Coaching Academy for primary-aged girls and boys throughout the year. These offer UEFA B qualified group coaching, focussing on the fundamentals of football in a fun and relaxed way.
In addition, we run a successful Under 9s' team in the Junior Chester and District League and from September, a newly-formed Under 7s' team will also be representing the village.
The Junior Football Club is keen to start up other age groups, so if anyone is interested in getting involved in any way, please contact Rich Doyle on the number below.
