Cheshire loses another football league club

Yesterday's results confirmed Birkenhead's Tranmere Rovers' drop into non-league football for the first time in 94 years. I remember when the Rovers were constantly in the top half of Division 2 (now The Championship). It was rumoured that the club made more from being regular challengers than actually achieving promotion. How things have changed!

In my lifetime New Brighton, Chester and Stockport County have departed, and Macclesfield have been in and out of the League. By my reckoning that just leaves Crewe Alexandra representing Cheshire.

I admire Mark Palios's optimism, but the record of teams attempting to return is not good.
