Trafford Football Club is an English football club based in Flixton, near Urmston in the Metropolitan Borough of Trafford, in Greater Manchester. The club are currently members of the Northern Premier League Division One North and play at Shawe View.


The club was established in 1990 as North Trafford. They applied to join Mid-Cheshire League and despite being initially rejected, were admitted to Division Two after a late withdrawal. They finished as runners-up in their first season, and were promoted to Division One. The following season they finished fourth and moved up to Division Two of the North West Counties League.[1] In 1993–94 they finished second and were promoted to Division One, at which point they adopted their current name.[1]

In 1996–97 they won Division One and were promoted to Division One of the Northern Premier League.[2] In 1999–00 they won the President's Cup, but in 2002–03 they finished bottom of the division and were relegated back to the North West Counties League. They won the league again in 2007–08 and were promoted back to the Northern Premier League. In their first season back in the league they won the President's Cup for a second time.
