Chirk AAA F.C. is a Welsh football team based in Chirk, Wales. They have been competing in the Premier division of the Welsh National League[1] since their relegation after one season in the Cymru Alliance.[2]

Their reserve team plays in the Welsh National League's Reserve Division.[3]

History[edit]

Chirk, along with other local teams Wrexham, Oswestry and Druids, became founder members of the Welsh Football Association[4] in the same year as their formation.

Chirk’s early teams were formed mainly from employees from both Chirk Castle and Black Park Colliery. Chirk played friendly fixtures against other local teams and it was not until October 1877 that Chirk competed in a competitive fixture, although archive information from the Football Association suggests that the club entered the 1885-86 FA Cup, losing in the first round to Burslem Port Vale 3 - 0.[4]

Billy Meredith started his footballing career for the club before joining Manchester City.[5]
