About Us

We are a 3-Star FA Accredited Community Football Club. 


We provide the finest standards possible for approximately 500 male and female footballers of all ages to participate in football each week.

Our 1st Team are members of the Midland Football League Premier Division, step 5 of the non league pyramid.

 

Our Ladies play in the West Midlands Regional League Premier Division.

 

We have a full time education academy on site daily.

Our Junior Section has 28 boys & girls teams.

 

We run a very successful Wild Cats scheme to help girls participate in football.

We offer a Saturday morning soccer school for 4-11 year old boys & girls.

We offer adults a chance to play weekly non competitive football at our Just Play scheme.


We are a non-profit organisation who continually invests in developing the growth of our football club both on and off the football pitch. 

We are thankful for the help of a large growing group of volunteers who give time each week in numerous roles within the club to undertake the services we offer.


History

The Club began life in the 1970’s as Beacon Rangers before changing it's name to Beacon Park. In June 2006 a decision was made by the Committee to change the club’s name to Lichfield City FC in order to raise its profile in the local community. 

We achieved our Charter Standard award within a year and in 2009 achieved the status of Charter Standard Community Club which is the pinnacle award for Charter Standard Clubs.
In 2010 Lichfield City FC was recognised by Staffordshire FA as the best Community Club in Staffordshire. 

In 2007 we took on the lease for the site at Brownsfield Road giving the club a recognised home.

In 2008 we moved our open age team from the Burton & District League into the Midland Football Combination, so that we could provide our junior members with an exit route into a better standard of football. That season we finished 5th, but we were fortunate enough to gain promotion to the second division after a league restructure.

In 2009 / 2010 we finished 3rd but missed out on back to back promotions as only the top 2 teams got promoted.

For the 2010 / 2011 season we moved our reserve team into the Midland Football Combination to benefit from the improved professionalism, standard and playing facilities that the league provide. That season our first team finished 4th in the 2nd division and again gained promotion due to a league restructure.

Season 2011/2012 was a great season with the reserves finishing runners up in the reserve division 2 and our first team a creditable 4th in the first division. After successfully gaining planning permission for floodlights, we had the platform in place for premier division football and following the Mid Comb AGM, both our teams were promoted to their respective premier leagues for season 2012/2013. We installed floodlights, perimeter fence, two covered stands and spectator path to the pitch to meet the higher league ground grading requirements.

In 2018 we installed a  3G pitch to accommodate the 350 participants playing football within the football club and hoping to attract more players to our ever growing Junior Section which has risen to 500.

In 2021 our 1st team gained promotion to The Midland Football League Premier Division, and in the first season finished in third place.
More ground developments have since taken place with a refurbishment to our lounge, a new home dressing room, refurbished away & officials dressing rooms, an additional covered seating stand, a covered standing terrace behind the far goal, turnstile block, TV gantry, spectator toilets, protected player walkway - all of which all give our Trade Tyre Community Stadium a feeling of a non league football stadium.

Even more developments are taking place as we are constructing a cafe within our premises which includes alterations to our kitchen and redesigning of our large function suite.Very exciting times both on and off the pitch.................

We finished 11th in 2022-23 a season that didn't quite live up to the previous league campaign but finish the season on Tuesday 30th May with a massive high - we won the JW Hunt Cup, at The Molineux Stadium, beating Tividale 1-0 thanks to a 1st half goal from our record appearance holder Joe Haines, Captain Kyle Patterson picked up the Man of The Match award on a great night for our football club.

Season 2023-24 is our best season to date.

We finished 2nd in the MFL Premier Division and missed out on promotion after a 3-1 defeat to Darlaston Town in the Playoff Final.

During this season we added a score board and media cabin to the bottom corner of our ground and updated our stadium speaker system. 

During a campaign where we played 57 games we reached three semi-finals, losing 2-1 away to Congleton Town in the League Cup and we went out of the Walsall Senior Cup on penalties after drawing 3-3 with Step 2 Rushall Olympic.

We reached the JW Hunt Cup Final for the second season running after a very youthful side beat Wolverhampton Casuals on penalties. After the game ended 1-1 Paul Hathaway was the Lichfield City hero saving four penalties and scoring the best penalty of the evening to set up a return to The Molineux.

We retained the JW Hunt Cup after Joe Haines got another final goal and Man of The Match Leighton McMenemy scored a brace as we beat Wolverhampton Sporting 3-1 to secure back to back triumphs at The Molineux.
