MOLD Alexandra is a famous name in Welsh football.

The club is no stranger to being founder members of a league having helped form the Cymru Alliance in 1990 and League of Wales in 1992.

Football in the town can be traced back as far as 1878 when Mold Town entered the Welsh Cup while in 1894 a club known as the Mold Red Stars won the Welsh Amateur Cup.

The following season the Red Star club joined the Welsh Senior League though only stayed for one campaign.

Mold continued to be represented and the club entered the FA Cup in 1925 and in 1926 reached the first round, losing 1-0 to Southport, before folding in 1928 with a new club formed the following year.

Mold Alexandra Football Club was founded in 1929 and spent its early years in the Mold, Deeside and Buckley League before joining the West Cheshire League in 1937.

The club joined the Wrexham League in 1947 and competed in the top tier until folding in 1955 and returning in 1957 before once again disbanding in 1960 and reforming in 1961.

The club celebrated its first title in 1986 and retained the championship in 1987 while a third title in 1990 earned the club a place in the newly founded Cymru Alliance and two years later became inaugural members of the League of Wales.

Alex were relegated in 1996 and suffered a further relegation in 1999 with the club returning to the Wrexham League.

The Wrexham League title in 2002 earned the club a return to the Alliance for three years before relegation in 2006 was swiftly followed by a return to the Alliance in 2009.

The club has continued to yo yo between the second and third tiers over the past decade with another Wrexham League title in 2014 followed by four years in the Alliance before relegation in 2018.
