WINSFORD United vice-chairman Ray Fitzsimmons aims to bridge a 50-year gap in amateur football.
Fitzsimmons aims to use the Over Three club he chairs as an established solid base for a high-quality Saturday amateur side. And that, incredibly, is something Winsford has been without since the early 1950s.
Winsford United have occasionally run reserves sides in the Mid Cheshire League and the side was revived last year, only for it to fold near the end of the season because of a shortage of players.
In recent years, Winsford IPC have run a team in the Crewe & District League, but that too collapsed last season.
What Fitzsimmons wants is an independent club, and the venture will have nothing to do with Winsford United.
The new club, which will be launched as an Under 17s side in the Mid Cheshire Youth League next term, will be called Winsford Town.
He said: 'Look at the size of this town and it is hard to believe we do not have and never have had an amateur team of any note in the Mid Cheshire League.
'Look what Barnton have achieved and the club they have got in Middlewich. Some of Middlewich's best players are from Winsford.
'Those places are nowhere near the size of Winsford.
'This is a football-daft town with a lot of talent and it is surprising the place has never been able to offer a good-standard amateur game to its youngsters.
'Like Over Three, the club will be based in the community and for the community.'
The five-year plan he and wife Cheryl have drawn up for Winsford Town allows for the team playing two more years at junior level before making the transition to the senior game. Within a further three years, it will be an established MCL team and hopefully chasing honours. They already have a major sponsor.
Barnton have won the Cheshire Amateur Cup twice in recent seasons and have just wontheinaugural FANationalSystemCup. They now represent England at the UEFA Regions Cup in Slovenia. Middlewich have just won their first Mid Cheshire League title for 28 years and have ambitions to join the North West Counties League.
Amazingly, Winsford's last Mid Cheshire League club was ICI Salt which operated from the Barton Stadium after the MCL was started in 1948, but it was wound up in the early 1950s when United launched a reserve side and needed the ground themselves.
Fitzsimmons was behind the latest reserve-team venture at United, who had to quit the MCL.
'We could not field a team for the last three games. The idea of players moving between the first and reserve teams just did not come off,' he said.
Meanwhile, he declined to comment about the launch of a new youth section at United. One of his roles was youth development officer and Over Three were attached to the Blues. Now Winsford Diamonds have been drafted in.
'I will have my say at the annual shareholders meeting,' he said.
MIDDLEWICH Town have completed the quintuplet!
While the club's Saturday teams took both the Mid Cheshire League First and Reserve Division titles and the District FA Cup, the Sunday side - Middlewich Town Supporters - haven't done so bad either.
They easily won the Mid Cheshire Sunday League Second Division championship and at the weekend won the Supplementary Cup.
They beat Goostrey 4-1 with ex-Winsford United star Stuart Tulloch scoring twice and winning the man-of-the-match award. Holbrooks and Armstrong also netted to help bring Middlewich's fifth trophy of the season back to Sedddon Street.
