SATURDAY league football is to return to Saltney for the 2010-11 season thanks to the formation of a new community-based football club.

Saltney Town FC is aiming to provide a further boost to football in the town, following the recent success of Sunday league teams Corner Pin and Saltney Ferry.

Andy Johnson and Marc Edwards, both of Saltney, have applied to the Welsh FA for the new team to play in the Welsh National League, and are hoping to offer a community focus.

The club will be based at Saltney Community Centre and will be affiliated to the North East Wales Football Association.

It will be the first Saltney football team to play Saturday league football since Saltney Community Centre FC played in the Welsh Alliance 12 years ago.

Marc and Andy are now on the lookout for more players to join the team, as well as sponsors and committee members.

Anyone interested is being urged to contact the club secretary Marc on 01244 629085 or send an email to
