Club Details

Lye Town Football Club play in the West Midlands Regional Premier League. They are one of the longest established clubs in the West Midlands region.

Founded in 1930 they quickly found favour with the local cricket club and were allowed the southern half of the Sports Ground on Stourbridge Road to set-up their goalposts. The following year Lye Town joined the Worcester Combination and remained there for 8 years until the outbreak of the war.

On the re-start of football in 1946 following the war, Lye Town joined the Central Amateur League for one season before moving to the Birmingham + District League in 1947/48. The league changed its name in 1962 to its present name West Midlands Regional League, and Lye Town F.C has been in the top flight of the league since joining.

From 1976-1981, Lye Town were runners-up in four out of five seasons, twice on goal average. The League Cup was won in 1975/76 beating Dudley Town 1-0 in the final. Lye Town have also been finalists on 5 other occasions. The team have enjoyed good exploits in the F.A Trophy and more recently in the F.A Vase, and were finalists in the Worcestershire Senior Urn in 2003.

In 1997/98 season, Lye Town achieved their only Championship as well as League Cup finalists. However, they were refused promotion to the Alliance, due to not meeting ground regulations. Runners-up Stourport Swifts were promoted in their place.

2010/11 season saw Lye Town first team win the Birmingham County FA Midweek Floodlit Cup and their youth team win the Midland Floodlit Youth League Central Division
