The Manchester Titans American Football Club was established in 2003 with the creation of its Senior kitted team. The team was a product of a small group of dedicated players no longer prepared to travel outside of Manchester to play their football.
The Senior team have competed in British American football continually since 2005 with playoff runs in 2005, 2007 and 2009. 2009 saw the team finish the regular season with the first of two consecutive regular season 10-0 undefeated records. 2010 saw the team build on this success and progress to the National “Britbowl” final, where they suffered a defeat at the hands of a very competitive London Olympians side 35-13.
The Club added a Youth Team in 2006 through Coach Alan Waldecker, who in 2008 managed to lead the team to 3rd in the UK and were crowned English Champions.
2009 saw the club expand again – this time at Junior Level (16-19 years) who entered the league in 2010.
In 2012, the Titans found it’s new home at Salford City Stadium, which in 2014 was renamed AJ Bell Stadium.
The Youth Team restarted in 2013 and despite struggling with numbers came back with a brand new squad of players in 2014, showing great determination and team spirit.
The Club has had some talented and notable players over the year including Ricky Whittle and Chris Fountain (ex-Hollyoaks stars), Graham Roberts, Mark Squire, Nigel Dias, (all have represented GB Lions). Several players have also gone on to play Football overseas including Anthony Bingham (Germany), Ashley Dewing (Germany & Finland), James Newnes (Brazil), William Wakatega, “Slick” Semper, Philip & Caleb Waldecker (all USA).
There are currently 4 Members of the Titans Hall of Fame – Former GM Tony McCulloch, Former HC Olando Holman, Former DL Neil Cash and Former LB Chris Harwood.
