Pelsall Villa

Currently Playing In:

Midland Combination Premier Division


The original Pelsall Villa Football Club was formed in the village of Pelsall near Walsall in 1897, but the modern version was considered to have been launched after the club had been re-formed in 1961.

Competitive football was enjoyed in the Staffordhsire County League until 1982 when ‘The Villains’ joined the Second Division of The West Midlands (Regional) League. The club gained two surprising, but very welcome promotions, firstly to Division One as fourth placed club in 1984, and then finishing third in 1990 proved enough to take them into The Premier Division.

Pelsall Villa have built an excellent reputation for selecting the right men to act as their managers and Reg Priest built a squad good enough to earn a well deserved promotion to The Midland Alliance, although the move up was achieved in 1996 from the runners up spot, although they had won the league in the previous season.

Since those golden years the club has found it consistently difficult to challenge for league honours, either in The Alliance, or after dropping back to the West Midlands League in 2004. In 2009 the club decided to move across to The Midland Combination but although guided by another long serving manager, Mark Bently, top ten finishes are still proving hard to achieve.
