Tipton Town

Currently Playing In:

Midland Football Alliance


Having first competed as Ocker Hill United in the Wolverhampton and District Amateur League from 1948 until 1967, the club changed its name to Tipton Town when accepted by the newly formed Division One of the West Midland (Regional) League.

In 1984 promotion was gained into The Premier Division and after a promising first season, the club suffered six difficult campaigns before being relegated. However, the next seven years saw steady improvement and promotion was achieved again in 1998.

The real turning point in the club’s playing history coincides with the introduction of
ex-player John Hill as manager. Three exciting seasons climaxed with the Championship in 2005 and Tipton Town celebrated a move into The Midland Football Alliance where they have steadily improved standards on and off the field.
