WE MEET AGAIN - Tipton Town

Tipton Town are yet again another side we have only ever come across since promotion to the Midland Alliance.

Tipton were formed in 1948 under the name of Ocker Hill United and played in the Wolverhampton and District Amateur league. They joined the West Midlands Regional League in 1965 and promotion to the Premier League came in 1985 when a certain Steve Bull played. Tipton won this league in 2004/05 to gain promotion to the Midland Alliance. Tipton's five seasons in the Alliance so far have seen them finish 11th, 5th, 9th, 5th and last season 4th. Tipton have always been known as a tough team with an excellent defence but they seem to have added an attacking dimention to their game this season with the addition of former Stratford Town striker Jozsef Jakab who has scored five goals already this year but is being matched by Danny Campbell who also has five.

Results so far this season has seen them blow away Alvechurch 5-0 in the FA Cup, wins over Rocester 2-0, Bridgnorth 1-0, and Coventry Sphinx 3-1 in the league with a 0-0 draw against Boldmere their only dropped points. They are currently top of the league with a record of P5 W4 D1 L0 F7 A1 Pts13.

Coleshill have struggled against Tipton, in fact they have lost all four meetings, and are a team that they would look to emulate with their steady progression with a very good shout of the championship this year.
