MIDDLEWICH Town manager Terry Murphy thinks his side should leave the Cheshire League to compete in the West Cheshire League next season.
Despite leading his team to a 6-0 success over WCL outfit Bronze Social in the Cheshire Amateur Cup on Saturday, Murphy sees the WCL as a superior set-up.
He said: ‘Middlewich should join the West Cheshire. It would make us a better, stronger club.
‘I don’t think the club would consider it, but we have won our championship three out of the last four years – last season at a canter.
‘It shouldn’t be like that and there would be certainly more teams to stretch us.’
Murphy’s sentiments were repeated by Crewe FC boss Ian O’Reilly, whose side lost 2-1 at home to Blacon in the county cup at the weekend.
O’Reilly said: ‘Blacon deserved to win. The West Cheshire teams are a better standard than our league.’
