Cheadle Heath Nomads, a pivotal part of the Cheadle Heath community in Stockport for over a century, has contributed to the development of notable football talents, including Everton’s Harry Catterick. Established in 1919 post-World War 1, the club was the brainchild of a group of local gentlemen who raised funds to purchase land for a community sports club. The Nomads, central to this vision, began as more than just a football club, providing facilities for cricket, tennis, and ladies’ hockey.
The sports club opened in 1921 with Cheadle Heath Nomads FC as a key component. Originally donning green and yellow quarters, the team later switched to their current claret and blue colors after World War 2. This change marked a new era for the club while maintaining its original spirit and community focus.
Cheadle Heath Nomads has remained a trusteeship since its inception, owning their own land and continuing as a community hub as envisioned by its founders. This enduring legacy highlights the club’s deep-rooted connection to local heritage and its significant role in fostering community sports for over a hundred years.
