Home: Cheshire Lines Sports Club, Liverpool
Formed: 1874
Nickname: The Chesh
Team Colour: Congress Blue

Cheshire Lines Football Club (locally known as ‘the Chesh’) was formed in 1874 as a representative team of what was then British Rail. It later became Cheshire Lines when British Rail ceased to exist in 1997.

The club was relaunched in 2015 and since then its teams have won 2 league titles, 2 league cups and achieved 2 promotions.

The club was a founding members of the Liverpool Football Association and consequently holds a prestigious senior club status with the FA. We also carry the FA’s Chartered Standard mark of excellence.

Our first team play open age football in Division 2 of the West Cheshire League, which is tier 12 in the FA system.

The State of Mind programme was established in 2011 with the aim of improving the mental health, wellbeing and working life of rugby league players and communities. They want to get people talking about it and as a club we believe it is as important to help our members with their mental well being as we do their physical health!

Their team of mental health and sport professionals deliver comprehensive education sessions throughout the UK in Super League, Championship and amateur clubs as well as colleges and community groups, aimed at raising awareness of mental health issues within sport. If you are involved with a football club or supporters group and would like to arrange a State of Mind session for your members you can get in touch via their contact page, or visit the In Your Area pages to find out what’s available where you are.

Whoever you support, you can join the State of Mind Family and be a part of this amazing movement.
