An occasional look back into Mellor FC's history
John Bellis becomes the oldest player to appear in the Lancashire & Cheshire League's Premier Division
Chris Boydell played against Manchester City...and here's the proof. OK, it was Manchester City veterans. Mellor played the Sky Blues to celebrate the opening of Wood Lane in September 2000. Mellor won 2-1 with a brace from Jon Cosgrove.
This team was run by Duncan and Danny Moore's dad Keith (since passed away). Can you name any of the players? Ajay Patel is in the front row centre. Duncan Moore is front row second left. And Trevor Oxley has the keeper's shirt on. Andy Hannan is far right back row.
Mellor Juniors run by Mark Hanson and John Eaton. Several current Mellor players came from this side, including Dave Whelan, Lee Power, Matt Cotton and Adam Barlow.
