DUDLEY’S Mayor has congratulated Dudley Town FC after the club won its first title for 38 years.

Councillor Andrea Goddard welcomed players, management and directors of the football club into the mayor’s parlour yesterday (Wednesday) July 5.

Team members were recently crowned champions of the Midland League Division One, earning the club’s first league title for nearly four decades and a promotion to the Midland Premier League next season.

The win also means the club will play in the FA Cup again next season, with the qualifying rounds starting in August.

Councillor Andrea Goddard, the Mayor of Dudley, said she was “really pleased” to welcome players and managers to the Mayor’s Parlour and she added: “I wanted to personally congratulate them on a fantastic season which has seen the club win its first title for nearly 40 years.

“I’m now an honorary fan after receiving the club scarf!

“I look forward to following their results next season and hope they can have a good run in the FA Cup after so many years out of the competition.”
