A Brief History

Waterloo Football Club is based at St Anthony's Road, Blundellsands, Crosby in the north of Liverpool. 2006/7 will be its 124th season, having been founded in 1882 by brothers Sidney and Harry Hall and George Abercrombie. From 1882 until 1884 the club was known as Serpentine after the road near its original ground. In 1884 a dispute prompted a relocation to Waterloo and so the club's name was changed. The club returned to the Blundellsands area in 1892 and has remained there ever since.

Formerly nicknamed 'The Drummers' they play in myrtle green, white and scarlet hooped shirts, green shorts and green socks. Their badge features a Lancastrian red rose with a black griffin in the centre.

Former players include Dick Greenwood, Ben Kay, Will Greenwood, Andy Titterrell, Watcyn Thomas, Kyran Bracken, Austin Healey, and Paul Grayson.

Club scrap book

We have news cuttings from 1914 - 2000.  They are taken from The British Newspaper Archive, a subscription service that enables researchers to delve into the past and discover stories around favourite topics.  As the images shown are jpeg files, they do not permit word searches, so we have added key words to assist future researchers.  You can take a look here.

The scrap book is far from complete as you will see.  Some articles are barely legible, but they have been included whilst we work on ways to improve their clarity.  In addition, we believe that you may have news cuttings about our club that could be included.  If you have any that we might use, please email Pete Cureton at waterloomembership@gmail.com and we can discuss how best to scan them in.  Or if you have any suggestions about the book, please get in touch.
