Wolstanton United
Wolstanton United, founded in 1946, are based in Northern Staffordshire near Stoke-on-Trent currently 7th in the Staffordshire County Senior League. Reg Birks was the original founder and the first manager until he relinquished his role in 1962. He was replaced by Ray Herbert who was initially a player in 1954 and served as manager for 28 years. Within the timespan of 78 years, the club had so few managers with all consisting of ex-players which is a testament to Wolstanton United as a whole. The club has a whole list of honours; most notably: Newcastle & District Cup Winners on four occasions, participating in the Staffordshire FA Challenge Cup multiple times, and more recently winning the Leek Cup, League Challenge Cup and the Premier Division.

Redgate Clayton
The Club traces its origins back to the Queen Street Youth Club, before officially adopting the name Manor Park FC in 1969. Starting out in the Longton League, the Club later transitioned to the Fenton and District League before finding its place in the North Staffs Alliance League. In recent years, significant transformations have taken place behind the scenes, with new chairman Alex Derrington spearheading the Club’s progress, highlighted by the acquisition of a neighbouring community center.
