Football has been played in Tattenhall for more than 400 years; we know this because 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, and Tattenhall U16s plays and trains Sunday afternoons and Tuesday evenings. And new this May, in partnership with MPH Coaching Academy, junior football training courses for primary aged girls and boys will be starting up! These will offer UEFA B qualified group coaching, focussing on the fundamentals of football in a fun and relaxed way..
AFC Tattenhall has enjoyed resurgence in the last couple of years. The appointment of a new manager and a steady, hungry squad with a blend of youth and experience (youngest player 16, oldest 53) have meant results have been improving. However we are always on the lookout and keen for new talent to join us!
