In 1985, the clubs decided to
merge and use the name Capenhurst Villa FC, with
teams playing in the South Wirral League Premier, and
First Divisions. The 1988/89 season, saw Capenhurst
Villa successfully apply to join the West Cheshire
League Second Division, with the Reserves continuing in
the South Wirral League.
The following season 1989/90, saw
Capenhurst Villa FC finish Runners up, in the Division Two championship, and lose
semi-finals in both the Wirral Amateur Cup and Durwen
(West cheshire) Bowl.
Cup disappointments were soon cast
aside though, when the club gained promotion to Division
One of the West Cheshire League, with the reserve side
stepping up from the South Wirral League, to Division Two
of the West Cheshire League, at the end of that
In the 1992-93 season, although, after initially proving
to be a difficult time for the club, with two teams now
holding West Cheshire status. Capenhurst Villa were soon
vying for honours.
consolidating their place in Division One, the First
team won through to Two finals, unfortunately losing out
to Cammell Laird in the Cheshire Amateur Cup final, but
going on to beat Mersey Royal to win the Wirral Senior
'The Cape' lost out in the same final a year later
1993/94, to Poulton Victoria.
Capenhurst Villa Reserves posted
their intentions in the 1995-96 season, finishing
runners up in Division Two, just one point behind
eventual Champions, Poulton Victoria
Unfortunately further League success was a
struggle, with the 1st team dropping into
Division 2, and the second string unluckily having to
drop into Division 3, but the Management & Committee
were forever hopeful.
January 2003 saw us change bases

to the Electric Research club, as the old Capenhurst
Sports and Social Club was closed. It was a bit of a
wrench, but we have been made more than welcome, so
business as usual.
2003, also saw a change in
fortunes, as in the 2003/04 season, Cape claimed the
West Cheshire Bowl ...Click HERE. Beating Heswall Reserves 2-1 in a close
2004/05 season also saw an
improving Capenhurst Villa, whilst after a great season,
they were thwarted in the promotion race in the dying
weeks to finish 3rd. Whilst Semi final disappointments in
the West Cheshire Bowl, and Wirral Senior cup, were
accompanied by an unlucky exit in the Cheshire Amateur
Cup, at the quarter final stage.
2010/11, an appearance in the West Cheshire
Bowl final, in May 2011 proved fruitless, as we
succumbed to a 6-1 defeat, to a strong Ashville

crowned as Division 2 Champions, and won promotion back
to division One, all with four games to spare. We also
reached the Cheshire Amateur cup quarters, losing out to

three semi finals, the Cheshire Amateur cup, the West

February 2016, saw our base for
the last thirteen years, The Electricity Research Club,
close. So as of this moment, we are somewhat nomadic, using local
pubs in the immediate area as our meeting place, until
we can come up with our own facility.
May 2017, saw our 2nd team led
to promotion By Daz Earlam, and Damian McGinnigle.
Confirming 2nd place in Division 3, on the last day of
the season. And for the start of the 2017/18 season, we
now hold Division 2, and Division 3 status. As we
elected to drop our 1st team down to the 2nd Division,
to help our NEW youthful 2nd team start in Division 3.
Onwards and upwards we go.
The Youth policy at the club
continues, and is seen by everyone, as the best way
Therefore, Capenhurst Villa Football Club,
look forward to a long, and hopefully successful,
association with the West Cheshire Association Football
