We are totally volunteer lead and only exist thanks to the support and dedication of all our volunteer managers and supporters who give up their time for free to offer local boys and girls of all abilities the chance to play and enjoy football.
We have achieved the coveted FA Charter Standard Club status awarded to clubs that are well run, sustainable, which place child protection, quality coaching and safety paramount.
We are extremely proud to be the Cheshire FA Charter Standard Club of 2016 following on from 2015 when we were presented the County FA Respect Award.
The club was formed in early 1985 by Alan Rainford and Geoff Ryan from Cub Scout boys who had become too old to continue playing in the Marple & District Cubs League.
Marple Athletic quickly became one of the elite Clubs in the area and we are now looking forward to the future having recently embarked on two exciting projects with our Girls-only squads and Football Development School both fully endorsed and supported by the FA.
