Dudley Town

Currently Playing In:

West Midlands (Regional ) League Premier Division


One of the oldest clubs in the Midlands, Dudley Town was formed in 1888, merged with Dudley Sy Johns and joined The Birmingham & District League but closed down for a few years after the first World War.

The club returned in the Worcestershire Combination and then progressed to The Birmingham League, but once again closed down. Another return was achieved after the second world war with a move through the Birmingham Combination to The Birmingham League, which became The West Midlands (Regional) League.

Qualifying for The Southern League in 1982, the club won The Midland Division title in 1985 and began their best two seasons in the club’s history in The Southern Premier Division. Sadly, although competing steadily back in the regional division, ground developments created financial problems and the club disbanded and left The Southern League in 1997.

Loyal officials and supporters immediately rebuilt Dudley Town, who were welcomed back to The West Midlands (Regional) League, where the club have worked hard to rebuild confidence on and off the field with the hope of returning to the Southern League.
