BRIEF HISTORY

Football has been played in Mold since it was first established in Wales, with a Mold-based team competing in the second edition of the Welsh Cup competition way back in 1878-79, and also reaching the semi-finals on two occasions. However Mold Alexandra were created in 1929 replacing numerous teams that had folded prior to its founding. The majority of the club’s history has been spent in the Welsh National League system, with the 1980s being a particularly successful time for the Alex, winning multiple leagues and cups.

As a result, they were invited to become founding members of the Cymru Alliance, and subsequently the League of Wales, although were relegated from the top flight in 1995. Since then, they have fluctuated between the second and third tiers respectively, winning the WNL Premier Division twice during that time. Their most recent trophy came in 2015, when they won their third North East Wales FA Challenge Cup.
