The club that is now known as Tipton Town was established in 1948 under the name of Ocker Hill United, turning out in the Wolverhampton and District Amateur League.
Ocker Hill enjoyed significant success, winning the Handsworth League, Wednesbury League (four times), the West Bromwich League and the Wolverhampton Amateur Premier on various occasions between 1948 and 1964.
It was not until 1967 that the club changed its name to Tipton Town when it successfully applied to join the West Midlands (Regional) League Division One.
Around the same time, work began on Tipton Sports Union stadium, which is now part of what is known as Tipton Sports Academy.The stadium has since provided a home for the club and several other sporting teams in the area.
The stadium, which was built on a former municipal tip and smelting works, officially opened in June 1971 and has been the clubs home ever since with the exception of a few years in the 2000s when the development of the neighbouring Tipton Sports Academy facilities required a temporary move to nearby Oldbury United.
The aim of this Lottery is to support the youth team players in their development through onto the reserves and into the First Team of the future.
How it works
The Lottery results are calculated using the temperatures from selected destinations around Europe on a particular day each week.
Players are assigned 6 numbers when registering, that are then checked against the last 6 digits of temperatures in Fahrenheit that are published in the Daily Mail on the day of the draw.
