U17's Grange Head Coach / Assistant Manager- Neil Porter 07866 205144
The U17's Grange team has been established since they were formed as an U8's team, competing in the NW Soccerzone at Robin Park Arena, Wigan on a Sunday mornings.
They joined the Wigan & District Junior League on grass in the season 2006/07 as an U10's team & in turn won both the League & Knockout Cup in their first season, becoming unbeaten in 18 months in all competitions.
They moved over into the Warrington Junior League in the season 2007/08 as an U11's team becoming Champions of the 2nd Division and unfortunately just getting knocked out in penalties in the Quarter Final of the League Challenge Cup.
They have won numerous small sided tournaments throughout the North West with many of their trophies being displayed at Highfield St Matthews Parish Hall, Highfield, Wigan
We were promoted to Division 1 season 2008/09 as U12's & finished a respectable 5th position out of 12 teams in the table and made it through to the FINAL of the League Challenge Cup, only to achieve the Runners Up in that season.
Season 2009/10 as U13's we finished 3rd from the bottom of the table but didn't get relegated as the Woolston team folded and the Appleton team in the old Div 2 did not want to get promoted.
Season 2010/11 as U14's we did in fact get relegated from the Premier into Division 1 finishing 11th out of 12 teams then in season 2011/12 as U15's in Div 1 we finished 9th out of 12 teams staying up in Div 1.
In the 2012/13 season as U16's we finished 8th out of 10 teams finishing the season but lifted the ALF HOLT LEAGUE CUP TROPHY beating Parkdale Sidac 4-0 in the Final on 18th May 2013 having beaten Winstanley Warriors in a Penalty Shoot out in the Semi.
This season 2013/12 we have moved to the South Lancs Counties League and are competing in just the 1 division with the majority of the opposition being local teams & Clubs.
We wish the Very Best of Luck to all the squad & parents etc for this new coming season.
