About the team

Original track was behind Black's Regal Cinema in King Street, the towns main shopping street.
In 1965 a new club was formed, their track being at Trow Lea, or the Leas as they were called, this being a green belt between the sea and the cliffs, and this piece of land was nicknamed 'The Nest'.
Changed their name to Trow Lea Mariners in 1965.
