About The Team

After a number of years Tony contacted some old team members for a get together and a kick about, and after everyone enjoyed it they decided to look for an over 50’s league. With secretary/treasurer Richard Badger and Tony they joined the Worcestershire over 50s league in season 2020/21 as part of Pershore Town FC, unfortunately covid struck which ended the season early. During Season 2021/22, as most of the team are based in the Wolverhampton and the surrounding areas, they began a search for somewhere closer to home. Tony contacted Ann, secretary of Tipton Town FC, who was very interested in the team joining. So, from season 2022/23 they will be playing as Tipton Town FC Super Vets.
