Chirk, along with other local teams Wrexham, Oswestry and Druids, became founder members of the Welsh Football Association[4] in the same year as their formation.

Chirk’s early teams were formed mainly from employees from both Chirk Castle and Black Park Colliery. Chirk played friendly fixtures against other local teams and it was not until October 1877 that Chirk competed in a competitive fixture, although archive information from the Football Association suggests that the club entered the 1885–86 FA Cup, losing in the first round to Burslem Port Vale 3 – 0.[4]

Billy Meredith started his footballing career for the club before joining Manchester City.[5]
