We will be operating a cashless system across all of our County Cup finals this year. Supporters can pay by card at the turnstiles. No tickets will be sold in advance of the games.

Once again, we have taken the decision to hand all under-16s free admission when attending with a paying adult.

All of this season’s match programmes will be digital only, meaning there will be no wastage of printed paper at any of our finals. Spectators will be able to view, read and download a copy of each matchday programme from

This means that, wherever you are in the world, you will be able to read the latest edition of the matchday programme right from your fingertips.


In 2015, a self-management opportunity of 3 brand new pitches via a 30-year lease saw the birth of FC Hanley – an independent group for Grassroot teams.

Our community coaching team now consists of 10 qualified coaches with qualifications ranging from ‘Introduction to Football’ through to UEFA B.

An average of 85-100 children join us every week and due to demand we now offer 1-2-1 coaching sessions, team coaching sessions and have plans to offer Manager development sessions very shortly.

Our pyramid is one that we are proud of – we embrace children as young as 4 and offer them the opportunity to develop through the ages with differing opportunities along the way.

FC Ramblers were formed in 2017 after breaking away from Meir KA where we’d only been for 1 season.

Before that, we were two teams from the Blythe Bridge Junior Football Club.

Up to now we haven’t won anything but were on course to possibly win the NSYL U16’s North League before the season was cut short due to the original Covid lockdown.
