Knutsford FC look forward to new campaign as pre-season fixtures come into view
While international fixtures such as the Confederations Cup tacked on to the end of the 2016/17 season are still ongoing, closer to home preparations are already underway for the new campaign with Knutsford FC due to starts their pre-season fixtures in just over a week’s time.
As Scott Dignan’s side look to reclaim the Cheshire League Premier Division title, they’ll come up against some tough tests, including higher league opposition 1874 Northwich and Whitchurch Alport – a losing semi finalist in last season’s North West Counties First Division playoffs – both visiting Manchester Road. There will also be a Stockport County XI making the trip.
The club would like to thank you all for supporting us home and away this season. We hope to see you again next season, we love you!

The Robins will also be on the road themselves, facing up against Manchester League teams in Wythenshawe Amateurs and Stockport Georgians – both whom should be tough tests ahead of what is sure to be an exciting tilt at the title once competitive fixtures begin again.
