Midland Football Alliance
A West Midland club formed in 1929, created history in 1971-1972 by competing in the longest running FA Cup match, when they won the fifth replay of their 4th Qualifying tie against Oxford City,1-0 after a total of eleven hours play!
Three famous Midland football personalities (featured in the team photos below) also scored goals for ‘The Church’, with Alan Smith going on to play for the full England team, Graham Allner becoming one of non-league football’s most successful managers during his time at Kidderminster and Steve Cotterill becoming a very successful manager at the top level of the game.
Sadly, the club’s achievements on the field haven’t commanded so many headlines, as the club’s life in The Southern league came to a disappointing halt when Alvechurch closed down for two years in 1992.
Briefly playing as Alvechurch Villa, a new re-vitalised club returned to competitive football in The Midland Combination and after winning the title in 2003, Alvechurch FC joined The Midland Alliance, where they have found it difficult to force their way into the top ten.
