Tarporley Vics First Team returned to action on 9th July this season, and has played seven games to date in the Hallmark Security Cheshire Football League Division One.
Two wins versus Lostock Gralam and Golborne have been balanced by defeats to Malpas, Maine Road Reserves and Middlewich Town.
If you notice that the results published are for Division One it is not because Tarporley Vics have been promoted! The Hallmark Security Cheshire Football League is one of the only Leagues in the Country that is expanding at present. The League has now set up a Premier Division of 16 Clubs and The First & Second Divisions contain 12 clubs each.

This will ensure that each Team will play 32 Games as a minimum (The same as the sides play in the 16-team Premier Division). The first two of these J A Walton Challenge Cup games v Irlam Reserves and Cuddington 1st Team have resulted in 2-2 draws
Tarporley Vics Reserves claimed three points when Crewe FC were unable to field a game in their first fixture however they lost 4-0 to Barnton Wanderers in their second game.
