Promotion joy for AFC Bridgnorth

AFC Bridgnorth romped to the West Midlands League Division One title in style with a 6-0 home hammering of Gornal Athletic Reserves. A day to remember at the Crown Meadow resulted in the new club’s maiden trophy and the first title in any guise since the 2007–08 season. That campaign saw them become champions of the Premier Division and they will be back at the level next season, where they will be fancied. Saturday’s success came through goals from Liam Bood, Simon Gregory, Glynn Coney, Kevin Buxton, captain Andy Hartlebury and Pip Hurdley. Mark Clyde’s side now complete their league fixtures at Mahal on Wednesday, with the chance of a quadruple still on through their cup involvements. They are still involved in the Division One League Cup, the JW Hunt Cup and have reached the Shropshire Premier Cup final, where they will play Ellesmere Rangers. It is the first step on the road back towards the Midland Alliance, where the now defunct Bridgnorth Town were playing before being hit by money problems, forcing them to fold last summer.

AFC LUDLOW
AFC LUDLOW

Receivership - In July 2012 the club entered receivership, with debts exceeding £400,000. "Phoenix" club, AFC Ludlow was formed and played their first season in the Mercian Regional Football League in Ludlow Town's place. History - Ludlow Town Football Club was founded in 1890 and played on council grounds around the town until 1981 when they acquired their own facilities at The Riddings Park. The club played in the South Shropshire, North Herefordshire, Kidderminster and Shropshire County Leagues until 1978 when their success in local football was rewarded with election to the West Midlands (Regional) League Division Two. In their debut season they won the title to clinch promotion to Division One. Rise - The club was mainly a mid-table side until 1990–91 when they finished as runners-up in Division One to Cradley Town, unfortunately they were denied promotion as their ground did not come up to the required standard. After ground improvements were made, the club was elected into the Premier Division in 1994 and during their first season at that level also reached the Premier League Cup Final and won the Shropshire County Cup and the Presteigne Otway Cup. In 1995 Town merged with local rivals Ludlow Colts, as the town was proving unable to sustain two clubs. In 2000 Les Bristow took over as manager and led the club to the championship of the Premier Division, dominating the division with just one loss all season and 100 goals scored. This saw the club promoted to the Midland Football Alliance, where they spent four seasons before succumbing to relegation in 2005. During this time they also re-located to their new ground, the SBS Stadium, located on Bromfield Road on the northern outskirts of the town.
Rapid decline
- Ludlow finished 10th in the Premier Division of the West Midlands (Regional) League in 2009–10, however in 2010 the club announced its intention to withdraw from that League with immediate effect and drop three levels to the Shropshire County Premier Football League, due to financial difficulties. The team merged with their reserve side, which already played in the Shropshire County League, and they played their final seasons in the Premier Division of that League, finishing 3rd in the 2010–11 season and 6th in their final season of 2011–12. With the folding of the Shropshire Alliance in 2011, the Colts team joined the County League's Division One in 2011–12, as Ludlow Town Reserves.

Black Country Rangers

The club was formed in 1996 by Gerry Clarke with help from club secretary Frances Tuzzio and magic sponge lady Jaine Fleetwood who was also programme editor. Gerry bought his first few players with him Luke Fleetwood Ross Clucas and Andrew Dodds from his previous club. They joined the West Midlands (Regional) League Division Two in 2007, and were crowned champions in 2009–10.[1] In 2011 they were promoted to the Premier Division of the West Midlands Regional League after finishing top of Division One. As of the 2011–12 season the club ground-shares with Cradley Town at Beeches View. With Paul Garner keen to step away from the management of the senior side and in to a club development role, BCR would see a new management team in place for the 2012-13 season. Rangers recruitment drive started with the appointment of David Ball, previously Women's Team Manager at Wolverhampton Wanderers FC and Head Coach with Wolverhampton Sporting stepped in to the vacant Sports physio position and was followed by the experienced Nigel Birch and Ian Broad to oversee the management of the BCR senior side. Following a fifth placed finish and retaining the Hunt Cup with a spectacular 4-3 win over Wolverhampton Casuals that season, the management team of Birch and Broad stepped down. The 2013/14 season saw the Rangers board moved swiftly, appointing David Ball as First Team Manager, who in turn, added long term assistant Darren Turner to the fold. The season started well for new management duo with ten straight victories(a record for the club) and an impressive F.A Cup run. Rangers went on to secure a fifth placed finish that season. Going into the 2014/15 season Ball's role developed to see him take on the reigns as Director of Football. This move would see him work closely with Paul Garner (Chairman), and Andy Harris (Secretary), to assist with their work loads. However, Ball remained an integral part of the football side of the club. The summer of 2014 saw Ball bolster the management team to assist him with in his side of his role, recruiting Jon Turner as Head Coach, Mick Turner as Assistant First Team Manager, to work along side Darren Turner and Avril Baker as Sports Therapist, alongside this, Rangers secured a new 4G training facility and sponsorship from Nuffield Health. The services of key players in Andy Price, Shaun Griffiths, Leon Miles, Phil McKerdy, Nick Turton and Jamie Hunt were retained and Rangers also added to their ranks by bringing in Simeon Townsend and Liam Hughes to add much needed firepower to the group and also Ross Miller and Nathaniel Lawson to add strength in depth. Rangers started the season well, however, before the turn of August, Ball had stepped down, experienced player Miller, would eventually take the reigns at Rangers and guide them to a 10th placed finish. Miller was officially announced as manager for the 2015/16 season. Black Country have finished in the top five twice since promotion to the Premier Division, whilst also winning and then retaining the JW Hunt Cup in 2011–12, and 2012–13.

Cradley Town

The club was originally formed in 1970 as Albion Haden United following a merger between the Haden Rangers and the Albion Rovers. The name changed in 1975. In 1971, the club joined the Midland Football Combination in Division Two. They were  league champions at the first attempt, but were not promoted. They also finished runners-up in Division Two on two occasions in the mid 1970s, but it was not until 1979 that they finally gained promotion to Division One. In 1983 they switched to the West  Midlands (Regional) League, starting off in the Premier Division, but were relegated in their first season. Promotion back to the top flight came in 1991, and for the next seven seasons they were generally a mid-table team in the Premier Division. In 1998/99,  however, a sudden change of form caused the Lukes to finish in second place and gain promotion to the Midland Football Alliance, where they played until 2010. In those eleven seasons they have only twice finished outside the bottom four in the league.  They were finally relegated after finishing bottom in the 2009-10 season. Since returning to the West Midlands (Regional) League, the Hammers have seen a number of managers at the helm. Duane Darby returned to the club for the 2014-15 season due to  Nigel Birch standing down at the end of the 2013-14 season.

In  1985 the new club joined the Midland Football Combination, initially in Division Two. Despite only finishing ninth in the league, they were placed in Division One for the following season, and were promoted to the Premier Division in 1997, even though  they had only finished seventh. In 1999 Sports finished rock bottom and were relegated back to Division One, but bounced back in 2003. In 2006 the step 5 leagues in the West Midlands area underwent some re-organisation and Sports were moved into the  West Midlands (Regional) League.

Dudley Town


http://www.dudleytownfc.org.uk/

Dudley Town FC was founded in 1888, and in 1898 incorporated another club from the town, Dudley St John's, moving onto the latter's ground at Shavers End and entering the Birmingham & District League. After World War I the club was dormant for a  number of years, but in 1928 it was re-formed and entered the Cradley Heath and District League, before moving on to the Worcestershire Combination. In 1932 the club moved into the Sports Ground, which had been built as part of a project to provide work  for the large number of unemployed men in the borough in the inter-war years. Over 16,000 people attended the opening match at what was to remain the Robins' home for fifty years. In the early 1930s Dudley dominated the Worcestershire Combination and  soon moved up to the more prestigious Birmingham League, unfortunately the club could not bear the increased financial strain and folded shortly before World War II. After the war the club was resurrected and progressed via the Birmingham Combination to  rejoin the Birmingham League, which in 1962 was renamed the West Midlands (Regional) League. The club enjoyed a run to the first round of the FA Cup in the 1976–77 season, where they were drawn against York City and held them to a draw at The  Sports Ground in front of a reported 5,000 fans, before losing 4–1 in a replay. In the 1981–82 season the Robins were promoted to the Southern Football League Midland Division for the first time in the club's history. During that same season the  club installed floodlights for the first time. The floodlights were switched on by local hero Billy Wright. Reportedly Wolverhampton Wanderers even turned down a prestigious close season tour to allow Wright to perform the ceremony. The club also  refurbished the 1,800 seated stadium and installed a VIP section, press box and state of the art public address system. In the 1984–85 season Dudley won the Southern League Midland Division to be promoted to the Southern League Premier Division for the first time, helped by strikers Brian Beresford and Brendan Drummond scoring over 50 goals between them. In the same year, however, days after the final game of the season was played against Stourbridge and clinching the title, mine workings under the  adjacent cricket ground collapsed, leading to the Sports Ground and the club's stadium being closed down and condemned, forcing the Robins to ground share with a number of different local clubs. There were a number of plans over the next few years for the old ground to be made safe and enable the club's return, but this never happened and by the early 1990s it was decided that the ground would be redeveloped as a business and leisure park.

On 24 April 1986 Dudley won the Birmingham Senior  Cup against local rivals Willenhall Town 4–2. This was played at West Bromwich Albion's ground, The Hawthorns in front of over 4,000 fans. In 1988 the club moved to a new permanent home at the Round Oak Stadium in Brierley Hill, where they  celebrated a successful centenary year, however by 1996 the costs of the ground were spiralling. The club officially moved out in 1996, to a groundshare arrangement at the home of Halesowen Town, with plans to sell Round Oak. However, the proposed sale dragged on, and in 1997, facing increasing financial difficulties, the club was forced to resign its place in the Southern League and close down. For a while after leaving Dudley Sports Centre in 1986, there was speculation that the old ground would be made  safe and Town could be playing back there by 1990, but these plans came to nothing and by the year 2000 the site was being developed as a leisure and commercial park.

In late 1997, club president Nevil Jeynes reformed the club and they were  accepted into the West Midlands (Regional) League, exactly 100 years after they had first joined its predecessor, the Birmingham League. After two years ground sharing with local rivals Gornal Athletic, the decision was taken to leave the borough of Dudley  and play at The Beeches, home of Tividale, situated just over the border since border changes in 1966. After a four-year exile, Town returned to the borough in 2003, having signed a deal to play for the next five years at The War Memorial Athletic Ground in  Amblecote, but in 2007 the club moved once again to the Dell Sports Centre in Brierley Hill. In the same year, they received entry into the FA Cup after an absence of over 15 years. Nonetheless, the club still plans to eventually return to a ground in the heart of Dudley itself, and hopes to challenge for an eventual return to the Southern League.

The 2008–09 season saw Dudley Town achieve their highest ever points total of 79 and finish once again in 5th position. The season also saw their longest ever run in the FA Vase, reaching the second round before losing away against Daventry  Town. The goalscoring exceeded that achieved in the last 14 years, with three players scoring over 15 goals. The season also ended with them being awarded FA Charter Standard. Their fifth place finish in the 2006–07 West Midlands (Regional) League  was their biggest achievement in a decade, and they are currently two promotions away from achieving their target of a return to the Southern League.

Ellesmere Rangers

https://twitter.com/TheMeresiders 

The club in its present form was founded in 1969, although there had been football teams in the town since the early 1900s. These early teams played their games on the Wharf Meadow, which at that time was  within the grounds of the local dairy. The Railway pub in the town was the venue for the first meeting of the club, which was dubbed Railway Rangers. A rummage sale was held and the sum of £125 was raised to purchase a kit and all the other  equipment necessary to get started. A field just outside the town at Newton was donated by president Mike Edwards. The players set to and did the necessary work to turn it into a pitch which enabled them to enter the Oswestry and District League for their  first season. That year the team was managed by a committee, and the season also marked the debut for the club and what has turned out to be unbroken service of future chairman Neil Williams. His father Bert Williams was also heavily involved and was the  first club chairman.

The club moved its headquarters to the Market Hotel in 1974 and the club name was changed to Ellesmere Rangers. They remained in the Oswestry & District League until the following season when they gained promotion  into the Shrewsbury and West Shropshire League. During the 1979 season a goalscoring record was established by Alan Millard who scored 52 goals in the season, but this record was surpassed by Danny Barton during the promotion year of 2009–10.  The Rangers' first major honour was in 1981 when, managed by John Edge, the club lifted the Shropshire Junior Cup at Gay Meadow, home of Shrewsbury Town after beating Weston United 2–1.

Rangers continued to progress and by  1988–89 were in the Shropshire County League. In July 2000 former League of Wales manager Geoff Graham came to the club. In the 2004–05 the club was promoted from the Shropshire County League to the West Midlands (Regional) League  Second Division where back to back promotions were achieved, with 2005–06 being celebrated as Rangers secured the First Division championship at the first attempt. Rangers quickly adapted to life in the Premier Division and recorded a mid-table  finish in their first season at level six of the National League System.

In the 2008–09 season manager Matt Burton arrived at the club and a strong challenge for promotion was mounted. This was narrowly missed by a couple of points with  Rangers having to settle for fourth position, putting the team in a strong position for the following season. This season also saw Rangers compete in the FA Cup for the first time in their history. The 2009–10 year saw the club debut of Andy Mulliner as  goalkeeper and assistant manager. His record of 20 clean sheets and only 16 league goals conceded in a season helped the club towards promotion to the Midland Football Alliance, and the Rangers beat Northern Premier League side Market Drayton Town  (two leagues higher) to win the Shropshire Challenge Cup. The following season saw the club reach the final of the Walsall Senior Cup at Bescot Stadium.

The end of the 2011–12 season saw the resignation of Matt Burton as manager due to work commitments, to be replaced by a management team in Richard Brown and Richard Gardner, but following early exits in the FA Cup and FA Vase, combining  with a run of eleven league games without a win, Brown and Gardner were dismissed. Former Kidderminster Harriers and England C player Delwyn Humphreys was appointed first team manager.

Gornal Athletic

Gornal Athletic were formed in 1919, the successor to an earlier club in the district, Gornal Wood Excelsior. Prior to 1972 they were known as Lower Gornal Athletic. They joined the Worcestershire Combination in 1951, then moved to the West Midlands  Regional League in 1962, where they remain to this day. In 1993–94 they were runners-up in Division One, earning promotion to the Premier Division where they spent nine seasons. After relegation in 2003 they bounced back at the first attempt,  claiming the Division One title and a return to the League's top flight. In the 2011–12 season, the club won the Premier Division championship under the management of Ian Rowe.

The club followed promotion to the Midland Alliance with a  placing of third in their first season in the new division. The club also reached the quarter finals of the FA Vase (losing to eventual winners Spennymoor Town), another club record, as well as the FA Cup second qualifying round, losing to Worcester City.

Manager Ian Rowe departed the club in May 2013, replaced by former Redditch United youth team manager Brian Knight.

The highest transfer fee the club has ever received was in 1965 when George Andrews and Gary Bell joined Cardiff  City in a deal worth £2,100. Andrews later played for Walsall and scored the winner in a famous giant-killing of Newcastle United in the 1974–75 FA Cup.

Pegasus Juniors

Pegasus Juniors were formed in 1955 by a group of players from the Herefordshire County Boys team who wished to continue playing together. Their name was inspired by the great amateur team Pegasus. Originally the club played in the local Herefordshire League, where they accumulated a large number of league titles and cups, until in 1982 they stepped up to the Hellenic League. In 1985 they were Division One champions and promoted to the Premier Division. Eight years later they were relegated but bounced back at the first attempt. In 1995 they were relegated once again due to their ground failing new guidelines, but in 1999 they returned to the Premier Division where they remained until relegated in 2011, where they opted to join the  West Midlands (Regional) League Premier Division, rather than drop into the Hellenic Football League Division One West to minimise travel. In the 2000-01 season, they reached the 2nd round of the FA Vase. In the season 2009-10, they reached the second  qualifying round of the FA Cup when they travelled to Football Conference side AFC Telford United.

Shawbury United

Shawbury United

https://twitter.com/shawburyutd

Shawbury United are one of the newer clubs in the West Midlands region, having been formed in 1992. They started out playing in the Shrewsbury and Shropshire Alliance Division Two. They swiftly progressed up the divisions, winning a number of local  cups along the way, and in 1999-00 the club were rewarded with admission to the West Midlands (Regional) League, initially in Division One North. In 2000–01 they were promoted to the Premier Division, where they remain to this day, with a best finish of second place in 2007–08.

Ups and downs Despite having aspirations to progress further up the football pyramid, recent seasons have seen fluctuating fortunes for the North Shropshire side. Although they have won more  local cup competitions along the way and a good run in the F.A. Vase (2007–08) brought the club some publicity, success in the league has been more sporadic. With other Shropshire sides Market Drayton, Shifnal Town and Bridgnorth Town all  progressing above and beyond the West Midlands leagues, Shawbury have been somewhat left behind and with Ellesmere Rangers and Ludlow Town also competing for a place in the Midland Alliance success has been difficult to come by.

2006–07 was a disappointing season for Shawbury in which the club finished bottom of the West Midlands Premier Division in 21st position, however due to Great Wyrley resigning from the league early on and Wyrley Rangers folding at the end of the season Shawbury avoided relegation. The following season 2007–08 was a totally different story. With Shawbury paying players for the first time, manager Delwyn Humphreys was able to steer the club into the higher reaches of the division and a run to  the last 32 of the F.A. Vase (a club record). In what was to be a dramatic and bizarre ending to the season, Humphreys resigned as the season entered its final weeks. Paul Mellings took over the reins and helped Shawbury to equal their best finish of 3rd,  despite other teams having many games in hand on Shawbury at one point. However Bewdley Town who had finished 2nd were deducted 3 points for a breach of the rules. This brought Bewdley back to the same points as Shawbury but Shawbury would finish  in 2nd place with a goal difference +1 better than the Worcestershire side.

In June 2008 Ally McHarrie was appointed as the club's new manager for 2008–09,[1] but his tenure did not live up to the previous season's achievements and he was  sacked just after the turn of the year, with the side lingering in lower mid-table and out of all the more presigious cup competitions in the early stages. After a slight upturn in form towards the end a disappointing season finished with Shawbury in 10th place  and long serving player Steve Giles eventually taking the management reigns for 2009–10. Life did not get any better for Shawbury, as 2009–10 began with the club bottom of the league after the early stages. In October 2009, the club drafted in  Craig Rogers as manager. Previously managing in the Shropshire County League and being young in years (26), it is seen as a gamble by the club. Despite having a good 2nd half to the season they still ended up finishing bottom of the league.They were  however saved from relegation and with a pre-season of regeneration approaching they will be hoping for a more successful season next time around.

After an inconsistent season, manager Craig Rogers resigned in March 2011. Despite their  troubles his tenure had to be regarded as a success having turned a team that were struggling for points and players to a competitive team in the WMPL. Steve Giles took the reins as caretaker manager until the end of the 2010/11 season.

Shawbury picked up their first win under Giles (and first since 22nd Jan 11) with a 2–1 home victory over Wolverhampton Casuals and a final day win at Wellington confirmed that Shawbury would finish 17th in the league and retain their premier division status.

A new era Dave Richards resigned as Wem Town manager on 7 May 2011 after guiding the club from the Shropshire County league to West Midlands Division 1 in 3 seasons.[2] His appointment as Shawbury's new manager was  confirmed on Wednesday 11 May 2011.[3]He will be joined by his assistant from Wem Town, Shaun Ingram, and after ruling himself out of taking on the managers role, club legend Steve Giles will also be a part of the backroom staff. Shawbury United finished the season with a creditable 10th position, and also won the Powell Charity Cup against Mid Cheshire Div Two Side Whitchurch Alport.

In June 2012 Chris Kirkup was instated as the new Chairman of the club.

For the 2012/13 season Dave  Richards remains as First Team Manager in a season that sees Shawbury return to FA Cup action for the first time since the 09/10 season. After Andy Waters stepped down as Reserve team manager at the end of the 11/12 season, Shawbury appointed Kevin  Cooper as Reserve team manager with Shawbury player Eddie Knox his assistant. For the 2012/13 season they are members of the Mercian League Division 1.

Shenstone Pavilion Club, Birmingham Road, Shenstone 01543 481658
Pathfinder Football Club were originally formed in 1968 following a donation of 75.00 from a certain Mr Doug Ellis, now of Aston Villa fame, which enabled the club to purchase a kit and ball. This allowed a group of youngsters to form a football club in the local Lichfield Sunday League which played in the Lichfield & District Sunday League for 33 years. The Club has been based in Shenstone since 1974 and has played a considerable part in the development of the facilities on the Playing Fields, which now include a Clubhouse, tennis court, cricket square and a flood lit seven a side pitch. It was only in 1994 that the Club formed their first Saturday team playing in the Burton and District League. In 1997 the decision was taken to move the team to play in the Birmingham AFA. After being accepted into Division Two, a couple of years of consolidation followed after which the decision was taken to strengthen the football side of the club and start a reserve side. This team now play in the Birmingham AFA and act as a feeder to the first team, who were accepted into the Express & Star West Midlands League in 2002. The first season saw us finish a creditable ninth, although at the end of March third or fourth place was a distinct possibility. The following season also saw the club lift The Bloxwich Charity Cup, defeating New Fulbrook 3-0 at Blakenhall Towns ground in the final on Easter Tuesday. The following season was a poor one, we finished in the bottom half of the league and were inconsistent for most of the season, Allen Russell resigned in March and Dean Gilbert was appointed the new 1st Team Manager for the following season. Nick Christodolou, a UEFA qualified coach was also appointed Reserve Team manager and things look positive for the future. In both their first seasons Dean and Nick almost achieved promotion missing out by only a few points. Dean also took the first team to the Staffordshie FA Presidents Cup final at Chasetown FC where they lost narrowly to a last minute goal by Cresswell. 2005-6 saw Paths most successful Saturday season ever, Manager Dean Gilbert took the club back to the Staffs FA Presidents Cup Final, this time winning 2-0 in extra time against Biddulph Town at Eccleshall FC. Paths also finished third in the league narrowly missing out on promotion. Unfortunately Nick Christodolou gave up the reserve team job, Graham Heanan and John Branch have now taken over the reigns in the reserves so everything looks good for the coming season. The 2006-7 season saw both the first and reserve teams gain promotion with both finishing second, the first team also lost two cup finals being The Wednesbury Charity Cup Final and West Midland League Div Two Cup Final, however a memorable night on the way to The Wednesbury Charity Cup Final saw Paths defeat a Chasetown reserve side fielding a number of first team players! 2007-8 season saw Chris Whitehouse take over as 1st Team Manager and saw us achieve our goal of avoiding relegation from Division One with the reserve side consolidating their position in Div 4 of The Birmingham AFA. 2008-9 was a similar story with relegation comfortably avoided and Chris Whitehouse agan developing excellently in his player manager role. The season also saw the club undergo a difficult battle with the Parish Council to remain in Shenstone, a battle it appears we have now won. Exciting times now lay ahead with the club looking to turn the pitch around to a more suitable location near the clubhouse and significant work on the clubhouse starting. The only remaining person from the original set up in 1968 is Alan Williams who has been Chairman of the club for a number of years and remains heavily involved in the development of the club, he is currently working on a joint project with Shenstone Parish Council to make the seven a side pitch an all weather court, this involved the club applying for Charter Standard Status which it achieved in January 2004.

Shifnal Town

Although other clubs with similar names had played in the town since Victorian times, the modern incarnation of Shifnal Town FC was founded in 1964 as St Andrews Youth Club FC, based at Idsall School and initially  playing in the Wellington and District League. They soon changed their name to Shifnal Juniors and in 1968 were promoted to Division Two, which they won at the first attempt and then successfully applied to join the Shropshire County Football League. In  1972 the club changed its name once again to Shifnal Town and in 1976 the team won the County League title and were elected to the West Midlands (Regional) League.
In 1979, the club, by now playing at Admirals Park, won promotion to the Premier  Division. They went on to win consecutive Premier Division Championships in 1980-81 and 1981-82, with promotion to the Southern League only being denied due to a lack of floodlights.
In 1985 the club saw their lease on Admirals Park terminated and  were forced to resign from the league and return to the County league, playing once again at Idsall School. Nonetheless, the club was able to purchase the land to build a new ground, Phoenix Park. At the same time, success in the County league saw them  able to step up to the Midland Football Combination in 1993-94, with a successful first season enabling them to become founder members of the new Midland Football Alliance. Their best season at this level was their first, after which their performances  declined until they finished bottom in 1997-98, and only avoided relegation as no clubs from the Alliance's feeder leagues were eligible for promotion.
The club finally succumbed to relegation in 2003, and spent three seasons back in the Midland  Combination before a re-organisation of the leagues in the West Midlands area in 2006 saw them return to the West Midlands (Regional) League after an absence of 20 years, where they were crowned league champions at the first attempt.

Wednesfield

  

The club was originally formed in 1961 as Wednesfield Social FC, changing its name in 1989. They gained entry to the West Midlands (Regional) League in 1976 and won the championship of Division One A in their  first season, followed by a runners-up position in Division One the very next season, clinching promotion to the Premier Division. In 1995–96 they won the Premier Division title but were not promoted, however the following year they repeated their  title success and this time moved up to the Midland Football Alliance, where they remained for six seasons before a last place finish in 2002–03 saw them relegated back to the West Midlands League, where they have struggled. In fact in 2004–05  they finished bottom but were spared relegation.
After a few years of consolidation a new management team came in during 2006/07. The team finished the season in thirteenth place but the following year finished in fourth place and reach the finals of  the League Cup and the J.W. Hunt Cup.
The Cottage Ground in Amos Lane, Wednesfield has been the team's home since 1971. For the first ten years of their existence they played at King George's Park. The Cottage itself was an institute for homeless and  orphaned children until its closure in the early 1970s, and the land where the football club is now situated had been its sports field.
The highest attendance recorded at the Cottage Ground is 480. In 2003 a crowd of just 10 people was recorded for the  visit of Biddulph Victoria, the lowest attendance ever recorded in the Midland Alliance.[1] The club currently ground-share with Wolverhampton Sporting Community.

WELLINGTONF.C.>WMRL 

Based in the village of Wellington, Herefordshire. They were re-formed in 1968. in the 2003-04 season, they reached the third round of the FA Vase. Although officially named simply Wellington F.C., the county in  which they play is sometimes appended to their name to differentiate them from another Wellington F.C. based in Somerset.
The club was originally re-formed in 1968 as a youth side, playing on a pitch which had been loaned to them by a local farmer  and changing in the village hall. The first league the club entered was Division 3 of the Herefordshire Football League. In 1978 the club moved to a new village playing field and, following the building of new wooden changing rooms in 1981, was invited into  the Herefordshire League Premier
Division. The club has won the championship of this league on seven occasions, the most recent three times by the reserve team following the promotion up the pyramid of the first team.In the mid-90s extensive  improvement work was carried out on the facilities at the Playing Fields and, following a Herefordshire Premier League and Cup double in 1996-97, the club successfully applied to join the West Midlands (Regional) League. In their second season they finished  champions of Division 1 South and also won the League Cup, but were not promoted to the Premier Division as their ground did not yet
meet the requirements for that level of football. In 1999-00 the team finished second and retained the league cup  and, following a fund raising drive, further ground improvements were made which allowed the club to be promoted to the Premier Division where they remain to this day, achieving their highest ever finish in the 2004-05 season in 5th place. In the 2008-09  season the team finally achieved the goal of winning the HFA County Cup, beating Westfields at Hereford United's ground, Edgar Street. In the same season the U18 team won the HFA Giant Killers Cup and the Colts team the HFA Junior Cup.
The club have entered the FA Vase since 2002-03, with their best performance coming in 2003-04 when they reached the Third Round (last 64). In 2007-08 they were accepted into the FA Cup for the first time,
beating Coleshill Town after a replay in  the Extra-Preliminary Round before losing to Rocester in the Preliminary Round. Club records Best league performance: 5th in West Midlands (Regional) League Premier Division, 2004-05  Best FA Cup  performance: Preliminary Round, 2007-08  Best FA Vase performance: 3rd round, 2003-04

Wellington Amateurs

The club was formed in 1950 as Old Wellingtonians by former students of Wellington Grammar School. The name was later changed to the current one when Head Master of the school discovered that the club had started accepting players that were not  former pupils. After 31 years in the Wellington League, the club joined the Shropshire County Football League Division One in 1981. In their inaugural season, Wellington won the league and cup double, gaining promotion to the Premier Division. They won  the Premier Division in 1982–83 and 1988–89, and finished runners-up in 2005–06, allowing them to apply for membership of the West Midlands (Regional) League Division Two. Wellington won the league in their second season and gained promotion to Division One. Despite winning the league in 2008–09 and 2009–10, they were not promoted due to their ground not being up to standard. After ground improvements, and winning the league in 2011–12, Wellington were  promoted to the Premier Division

In the 1983–84 season the Reds won the title, scoring 100 goals in the process, and gained promotion to the  Southern League Premier Division. Although they finished 4th in the Premier Division in their very first season, after that their performances declined until they were relegated back to the West Midlands (Regional) League in 1991. In 1994, however, the club  became founder members of the new Midland Football Alliance where they were consistent mid-table finishers until the 2003–04 season when an impressive late season run saw them finish second and gain promotion to the Northern Premier League  Division One.

In their very first season in the Northern Premier League the Reds made it into the promotion play-offs but were defeated. At the end of the 2004–05 season, Willenhall were switched to the Southern League Division One West,  and in 2006 they were moved once again to the newly re-organised Division One Midlands. In 2006 manager Rob Smith and assistant manager Larry Chambers left the club for the position of managing AFC Telford United. Mel Eves was appointed as the new  manager of Willenhall shortly afterwards.

At the end of the 2006–07 season Willenhall went to the play off final to face Bromsgrove Rovers. While the game ended 1–1 after ninety minutes, extra time saw Bromsgrove score an extra  goal and gain promotion. In November 2007, Eves left the club and the first team managing duties fell to Dean Edwards for the remainder of the season. With two games remaining in the 2007–08 season, however, Edwards also parted company with the  Lockmen and chairman Paul Garner and Tony Smith took charge for the last two games, winning both, against Barton Rovers and Woodford United.

In May 2008 Garner announced the appointment of Shaun Cunnington as manager. Cunnington  previously managed Alvechurch in the Midland Football Alliance and when he moved to the Lockmen he was joined by his assistant manager Paul Tomlinson and later by former Coventry City goalkeepeer Tim Clarke as goalkeeping coach.

In May  2009 the club underwent a period of financial unrest when it was announced the club was selling its ground to Sporting Khalsa. However later that month the club announced that chairman Paul Garner was leaving the club. In November 2009, Shaun  Cunnington and assistant manager, Paul Tomlinson left the club. The committee then appointed Steve Pomroy and Micky Rawlings as their replacements. During an uncertain period at the club, relegation to the Midland Football Alliance was confirmed for the  2010/11 season.[1] After finishing bottom of the Midland Football Alliance in the 2011-12 season, Willenhall Town became fan-run and were relegated to the West Midlands (Regional) League Premier Division. They finished in 20th place for 2012-13 season  and played their last match at Noose Lane against Bromyard Town on 7 May 2013, moving to Long Lane Park, Long Lane, Essington for the 2013-14 season.

They finished runners-up in  Division One for three successive seasons, and were promoted to the Premier Division in 1987–88 after a fourth-place finish. The club reached the First Round of the FA Vase in 1989–90, however The Cassies were relegated back to Division One  in 1991. They regained their Premier Division status after winning the league in 1994–95. In 2010–11, the club were runners-up in the League Cup.[2] For the 2011–12 season local management duo Lee Cooke and Carl Abbott took control  of the first team, and following a squad rebuild guided the side to its best ever, 3rd place finish in the Premier Division.

Midway through the 2012-13 season, with the side in 4th place in the table, Lee Cooke resigned his position as joint manager  on 15 December 2012. Carl Abbott took sole charge of the first team. During the course of the 2012-13 season Casuals reached the first qualifying round of the FA Cup, taking Midland Alliance side Tividale to a replay, before going out, having disposed of  Tipton Town and Pilkington XXX in earlier rounds. The team finished the season again in 3rd place, in a tightly contested championship with Lye Town and eventual winners AFC Wulfrunians, achieving 97 points for the season, a best ever league record  achieved. Casuals also ended the season as runners up in the JW Hunt Cup, finalists for the first time in the club's history, narrowly losing out in the final to Black Country Rangers.

The following season the team secured their third consecutive 3rd placed finish in the Premier Division, this time achieving 98 points, again a best ever league record achieved in the club's history, and only 3 points short of the title. At the end of the  season, after a successful four year spell, Carl Abbott resigned his position as manager in order to take the managerial position at Hinckley. He was replaced by former Sporting Khalsa manager Mark Holdcraft.
