Bromsgrove Rovers likely to fold


Bromsgrove Rovers looks likely to fold after 125 years.  The club has been expelled from the Zamaretto South and West after the Coumcil refused to give the club a lease to the Victoria Ground.  The club has had serious financial problems and has been marred by years of infighting between supporters and the current and previous board of directors.

The lease has gone to Bromsgrove Sporting a fans' owned club which includes some ex-directors of Rovers and plays way down the non-league pyramid in the Midland Combination Second Division.

Bromsgrove Rovers at one time played in the top tier of non-league football.   Located on the fringes of the West Midlands conurbation, the town should be able to support a relatively high level of non-league football.
