Considerable effort is being made to build a history of Halesowen Town Football Club, which is widely reported to have been formed in 1873.
Using carbon copy teamsheets, matchday programmes and match reports, including research at Dudley Archives, the playing records for the period from the Club’s reform after World War II to the present day are nearing completion: Please click here to view.
It is anticipated that information prior to WWII will not be easily obtained and the very early years have some mystery about them including when and where matches were played.
Although the Club’s programme notes in the 1950s often referred to old records that were kept by a Yeltz fan, Claude Eades (see photo), there is nobody currently involved with the Club who knew or remembers Claude and so we would be very grateful to hear from anyone who can help us either with information about Claude and/or his Club records or who can provide help in building the history of Halesowen Town from 1873.
