Football Alliance 2017 - 18: Fourth Division Clubs and Colours


Concluding our preview of the clubs constituting the revamped national Football Alliance for 2017-18, today features the new Fourth Division of a further sixteen teams.
Of these, three have joined from the Scottish Championship - Dynamo Dundee, East Fife and Solway Star - and five, in the form of Atletico Espanol, Bishop Auckland, once champions Blackburn Rovers, re-formed after most recently being members of the Alliance as the 'BR' in the merged Nelson CBR, Pegasus and Rochdale - now known as 'Red Flag' have rejoined the national structure.
The other half of the division is comprised of Welsh League runners-up CPD Porthmadog, another three prominent clubs from the north west Crumpsall/Harpurhey (the original Alliance members Harpurhey Borough relocated some years ago to become Manchester Newton Heath), Mersey Ironworks and Sporting Skelmersdale, and clubs representing various of the ethnic communities, the workers of Hapoel and the Czech, French and Polish 'Red Stars'.
