Did any of your Dads or Grandads play for Ashville FC. I am requesting photos to update the History of the club and the more the merrier. This year the pictures in the clubhouse are getting rearanged so could even add more from past years.

Thanking you in advance

Ashville Football Club was founded in 1949, by John and Joyce Dennett from 25 Ashville Road Wallasey.

From that humble beginning they had immediate success in the Wallasey Youth
league, before progressing to the Bebington league in 1951. After winning
the championship, Ashville moved to the Wirral Combination and won the
league for three consecutive seasons.

In the 1955-56 season Ashville were voted into the West Cheshire League
Division Two, and in their first season won both the championship and the
West Cheshire Bowl. In the following season they were promoted to Division
One, and amongst the honours collected at their Wallacre Park ground were
the Wirral Amateur and Wirral Senior Cups.

In 1962, Ashville moved to their present ground ‘Villa Park’, where they have
had some success,notably the First division championship in the 1967-68 season
and more recently, 1997/98 season, winning the coveted ‘Cheshire Amateur Cup’
whilst finishing a creditable, Runner-Up in the Division One championship.
In season 2002/03 having been re-instated in Division One after finishing in
a relegation place the season before they went on to win the Pyke Cup for the
first time.

In 2009/2010, Ashville Reserves defied the odds to win the Auto Focus Challenge
Shield 1-0.

in 2010-11 Ashville Secured Promotion back into the first divison as well as winning the Cheshire Amature Cup and Howarth & Gallagher Bowl.

Did there used to be another building at the other end of the pitch
from the main club 1970s? I'm almost sure I played table tennis there for a few months.
Can't remember if it was Wirral 1st Division and whether it was under the Ashville name or Wallasey YMCA and hired the building for match nights.
I've got such a poor memory
