The Cables

Prescot Cables Football Club, nicknamed “The Cables,” is a non-league football club based in Prescot, Merseyside.

Established in 1884, they currently compete in the Pitching In Northern Premier League Division One West, which is part of the eighth tier of English football. The team calls Valerie Park their home ground.

Prescot Cables Football Club, initially formed in 1884, has experienced significant developments over its history. Starting with friendly matches, they progressed through various leagues, including the Liverpool & District League and the Lancashire Alliance, achieving their first championship in 1899-1900. The club, renamed Prescot Cables in 1928 after sponsorship from a local cable company, won its only league championship in the 1956-57 season and faced relegation from the Lancashire Combination in 1975, leading to a period in the Mid-Cheshire League.

The latter part of the 20th century and early 21st century saw fluctuating fortunes. They rejoined the North West Counties League (NWCL) in 1980, achieving promotion to the UniBond League Division One in 2002-03. However, the mid-2000s brought managerial changes and performance challenges. The club narrowly missed promotion to the Conference North in 2005 and faced relegation threats in subsequent seasons.

Recent years have been marked by managerial instability and resource constraints. Despite these challenges, under managers like Joe Gibiliru and Neil Prince, Prescot Cables managed to retain their status in the Evo-Stik League, showcasing resilience and adaptability in the face of adversity.
