From a team formed in 2003 as a group of work friends looking for an organised kick-a-bout, AFC Stockport have come a long way. The team has grown from those work colleagues playing weekly matches on dusty astro-turf, to a well-run nine-team club that supports men’s, women’s and junior forms of the beautiful game. Having enjoyed decent results in friendlies and friendly tournaments when first established, the team decided to join a competitive league and became a member of the Stockport and District Sunday Football League(SDSFL) in 2008. Market Place Europe Ltd. came on board as a sponsor in that same year and are still the clubs sponsor today, sponsoring every team at AFC Stockport. It was important to everyone involved, that team supported each other and it was more like a family. And that family soon expanded. The positivity surrounding the team brought more players to the club, which saw additions to the men’s team : - Sunday Reserve Team 2010 - Sunday 3rd Team 2013 - Saturday Team 2015 - Sunday 4th Team in 2017 and a Saturday Reserve Team in 2018.…our 3rds changing their name to Rangers and our 4ths changing their name to Legion for the start of the 2018/19 campaign. With the men’s team performing well a few of the female supporters back in 2006 decided it would be only right to create a team of their own. Similar to the men’s team back in the early days, the Ladies played just friendly games before moving in to the Cheshire & Manchester league back in 2010. The league changed it’s name to the Cheshire Women’s & Youth League shortly after. Sadly the team came to an end in the summer of June 2019 after they were blocked by an FA decision to move leagues, despite this being an option in men’s football. The decision which was not appreciated by many on social media. With AFC Stockport Ladies folding due to the FA’s decision, the club then supported the players who left and created a new team called Stockport Lionesses. With so many female players involved, it was agreed to create a second team in the very same summer. AFC now support these teams with social media cover and a place on our website. The club state there should be no boundaries between men and women’s football and all should be treated equally. With established adult teams at the club, the next challenge came in June 2019 when AFC Stockport ventured in to Junior football, with the introduction of an Under 10’s team….and what an introduction it was. The Under 10’s winning their first ever tournament on the day the team was launched. We are AFC Stockport and we are 9 teams, 1 club! #afcfam
