AFC Oldham 2005

Still going strong

AFC OLDHAM was formed in 2005 - hence the name! It was an amalgamation of an open age club and a junior club,

The open age club - Clarksfield St. Edwards - was originally established in the 1960s, orginally named Clarksfield. In the late 1980s they merged with another open-age side - St. Edwards - thus creating Clarksfield St. Edwards.

In the 1997-8 season came their only major success with the first team winning their league. The following season success was almost repeated by the second team, only for them to finish as runners-up to a team they had beaten on three separate occasions that season. 

The club has run three teams continuously for nearly 25 years and is still going strong. 

In  2005 they were approached by local publican and ex semi pro footballer Dave Giblin to use his pub as a new base. This also attracted a junior side called Littlemoor Juniors, which had several junior teams.

The decision to merge two smaller clubs to become one big community club was carried out and, as they say, the rest is history.

In our first season (2005-06) our under-13s won the fairplay trophy in the Rochdale & Oldham Junior League, and more recently our open age third team won their respective league in 2007-08.
