TIVIDALE FOOTBALL CLUB ........THE HISTORY

Tividale F.C. was originally founded as a the senior branch of Tividale Hall Youth Club F.C, playing in the Handsworth and District League from 1953-1968. Tividale F.C. entered the senior league from 1956-1960. after two years without league football, they joined the Warwickshire & West Midlands Alliance. having four highly successful seasons until 1966, they joined the newly formed West Midlands (Regional) League, Division One.

In 1973 they won the Division 1 League and League Cup Double gaining promotion into the Premier Division. 1974 saw Tividale move to their current ground in Packwood Road, naming it ‘The Beeches’, after the British Waterways Official who granted the lease to the club.

The early years in the Premier Division. were amongst the most successful in the clubs history. In 1975-76 enjoying a superb F.A. Cup run reaching the 4th round only to lose 3-2 at A.P. Leamington. In 1977 they won the Premier division League Cup beating Alvechurch 1-0, and in the same season they won the Wednesbury Charity Cup.

During the 1980’s the clubs fortunes waned. Despite finishing runners-up in the Walsall Senior Cup in 1984 and finishing 6th in the Premier Division in 1985. Unfortunately a run of poor seasons followed. In 1991 a League ruling that Premier clubs should have floodlighting, and the club unable to afford them, saw the club relegated to Division One. Due to these events,
in the close season of 1991 the Manager and several players left the club. After four months the club brought back Terry Jones who had managed the club in the 70’s. In 1992 he guided Tividale to 3rd place in Division One, and the floodlights were erected at the end of that season. In 1993 Tividale finished Division One runners up and gained promotion back into the Premier, unfortunately this was also the year that the Midland Alliance was formed, and so in reality we were back to were we started.
Since then there has been giant strides made on and off the pitch, with the 2001/2002 season proving to be one of Tividale’s most successful for a long time. Runner’s up in both the West Midland Regional League Premier Division to Westfields and the Walsall Senior Cup to Bolehall Swifts after an epic 4-4 draw and losing on penalties. The 2002/2003 season again saw Tividale reach the final of the Walsall Senior Cup final, but this time they were successful beating Doc Marten side Rocester 1-0 to lift the trophy. In the 2003/2004 season Tividale again reached the Walsall Senior Cup final for the third successive time, but were beaten 3-1 by Sutton Coldfield Town from the Doc Marten League. Off the pitch they have built new changing rooms, boardroom, and completely refurbished the Social Club, and the work doesn’t stop there. Even now the work is ongoing, with the aim now is to get the ground up to Doc Martens standard with hard standing now all around the ground and a 300 seater stand in place.
