The era of Stan Storton. The club won the Cheshire Senior Cup again in 1973/74. The following year, they retained the Senior Cup and added the NPL Cup, as the team became one of the strongest in the league. The season after - 1975/76 - the club won their first NPL league title, and took their third league scalp - Southport - in 1977/78, with the NPL Cup won again in 1979/80.
