This season has seen Denise Frankham taking control of the club as chairwoman after the sudden passing of Graham Hodson in August and then the loss of Paul Lloyd unexpectedly in January.
The club has seen one of its best seasons for many years. A final placing of 11th in the West Midlands regional league is the clubs highest league finish since the 2001-2002 season when it dropped out of the Southern League.
The club were also winners in the Smedley Crooke Memorial Trophy beating Barnt Green Spartak in the final 3-2 at Bewdley Town.
This season has also seen the announcement of the return of Wolverhampton Wanderers women’s team to Queen Street from next season and the launch of the fan written book ‘Bilston Town, One Family’
Congratulations to Denise Frankham, Scott Hamilton, and all of the board, the volunteers, the players and the great supporters. Onward and upward in 2018-19.
Up The Steelmen!

The FA has revealed the step 5 and 6 league allocations and there are a handful of changes to our opponents for next season.
Wolverhampton Sporting Community has been promoted to the MFL Premier Division with Shawbury United and Haughmond relegated back into the WMRL.
Wem Town are promoted from WMRL Division One with Pershore Town moving across from the MFL Division One.
Stone Old Alleynians and Ellesmere Rangers are moving sideways to the North West Counties League Division One South, probably the most sensible pyramid move this off-season with two regionalised NWCL divisions at step 6.
Despite rumours of Herefordshire clubs potentially moving sideways, the FA have decided to leave them where they are so we will still have three trips to Hereford and have replaced a long trip to Ellesmere with an almost as long trip to Pershore!
