Club HistoryEdit

The club was founded back in Season 3 as a pub team. When prodigious young manager Heywood saw the team playing against the Manchester United Girls U-12s, he recognized their talent straight away and agreed to terms with the club to take them on their path to glory.


Since then, the club has steadily moved up the promotional ladder, culminating with a victory in the Div 1 promotional playoff in Season 13. The first 10 seasons resulted in the club working its way up to the top tiers of English football, and from Season 12 onwards the team have been in Div 2 and above, starting a glory-era for the club.

And then during the middle of Season 15 - the current logo was introduced.



JerseyEdit

Home Jersey

Bombershome

The home jersey (right) has consistently been based on a black shirt with a red overlay. Although the pattern has changed fairly regularly, the colours have significance to the club. The black shirt represents the faces of the families of the founders of the club, who lived in an area that was heavily reliant on the coal industry. The red additions to the shirt are representative of the heart that the players put into their performances.







Away Jersey

The away jersey (right) has consistently been based on a white shirt with a red overlay.

Rising Stars And Other Notable PlayersEdit

A. "The Messiah" Fry.

A. Randell.

Ashby Randell will live in infamy as the largest non-achiever ever involved with the club. Randell was an original member of the Bombers' squad at inception in Season 3 as a 20 year old. Recognizing that the player was not going to see significant development and not likely to make the club's First XI, Randell was sold on to Burslem Valiants in Season 5. He was then quickly transferred from Burslem Valiants to the stokies, also in Season 5. Throughout his entire career, from S3 to S13, Ashby Randell played 0 competitive games. No cup appearances and no league appearances. With a wage of 360,000 per season, over 10 seasons, Randell cost his clubs 3.6m and provided absolutely 0 return, never stepping foot onto the pitch. Randell's final club (the stokies) was marked inactive at the end of S13, and with the disappearance of the club, Randell also leaves the game.
