Northwich Victoria were formed in 1874 and named in honour of the reigning monarch, Queen Victoria.
The Northwich Victoria Supporters Association have been working tirelessly to buy the club and take it out of administration for a number of months and on Monday was dealt a final blow by the FA who have put a deadline of Wednesday 14th March to bring the club out of administration or it will be folded. The club held an emergency meeting with its supporters and managed to raise £11,000 of the £16,000 required and therefore we have turned to the supporters, friends and family of football all over the UK to see if anyone no matter how big or small the donation can help us across the finishing line. As a group of supporters we are overwhelmed by the response so far and will be forever grateful if you can help to save our proud historic club
During the 2016 - 2017 season the club supporters have contributed a staggering £66,000 to keep the club going and today came the final battle as the FA have ruled that to take over the club as a supporters run club we need to have all the remaining creditors paid in full by Wednesday 14th June by 5:30pm.
Our appeal is to any football fan, player or individuals that can help us get across the line no matter how big or small the donation to save our club and we will be very gratefull recieved and we will be forever thankful for joining our battle to save Northwich Victoria Football Club

What an incredible response over the last 24 hours and we are overwhelmed by all the support and best wishes of friends and footballing fans from around the UK. We have seen an amazing media response which featured also on our local news station and footballers past and present have helped share and support our cause. We have reached 30% of our target with the funds raised just standing at over £1.5k which is simply amazing. Please keep sharing our story and Thank-you, once again, Ian

Great traditional old club. I have links to Northwich as my father is from the town. Spent a lot of my time there growing up. Me and my father John wish you all the best.

Great Days at Wembly and waiting for 3:00pm Saturdays ruined by greedy egos but still love non-league football with my son now.

Vics have given me so many moments of joy and magic memories over the years, I couldn't cope with them going out of existence.
