Stourbridge

Currently Playing In:

Southern League Premier Division

 

A well established midland club was formed in 1876 and originally played in the Birmingham League, which was to become The West Midlands (Regional) League.
Following the Second World War, ‘The Glassboys’ joined The Birmingham Combination but after eight years they returned to their original competition, where they remained until being accepted by The Southern League in 1971.

Stourbridge have been a proud member of the highly respected league ever since, apart from a six year break when the club dropped down in 2000. This break was used to rebuild confidence and also to improve ground facilities and after two championships in 2002 and 2003, the club was ready for promotion in 2006 when Stourbridge finished as runners-up.

Previously only in The Southern League’s Premier Division for two seasons in the early eighties, the club won promotion to the Southern League’s senior level through the play-offs in 2008. The impressive managerial guidance of Gary Hackett had led them to their highest level and in each season since, Stourbridge have improved their league position.
