During the 2016/17 season, the Board reviewed on various aspects of the club.

The request was then made to the FA.

Since, Radcliffe is no longer a Borough, the club thought change was needed to the name.

Back in May 2016, the announcement of change was first made by chairman Paul Hilton at the end of season awards.
