2018-19

After starting with seven straight defeats, huge changes to the squad saw a turnaround in fortunes, game to game. The 21 points dropped in those early games certainly cost Bilston Town a top ten finish but the correction early in the season did cut the rot and avoid a much worse outcome meaning the team eventually managed a steady and respectable mid-table finish.

Notable: Bilston were presented with the “Fair Play Award” and the “Respect Award” at the West Midlands Regional League Awards in June 2019. This year is now the 125th year of Bilston Town Football club and the 100th year at Queen Street. Look out for the pre-season fixture against Tamworth, Tamworth Castle were the first team to play a competitive game versus Bilston at Queen Street in 1919.

Onward and upward in 2019-20.

During all of the research I have carried out since May 2013 I have never come across a mention of the Camkin Cup until earlier this year. I still have not found out if Bilston did take part in this competition or what any of the results may have been. If anyone has any information about this competition please get in touch.
