Their History

The club was established in 1929 as Alvechurch Juniors and played in the Redditch League until World War II. They were runners-up in the West Midlands Alliance in 1960–61 and moved up to Division One of the Worcestershire Combination. After a seventh-place finish in their first season in the Combination, the next seven seasons saw the club finish either first or second in the league, winning the league title in 1962–63, 1964–65 and 1966–67 and the League Cup in 1964–65, 1965–66 and 1967–68. In 1965–66 they reached the semi-finals of the FA Amateur Cup, eventually losing 1–0 to Wealdstone at Stamford Bridge with around 10,000 supporters travelling to London for the game

Alvechurch's first season in the Northern Premier League saw them finish as runners-up in Division One South, resulting in promotion to the Premier Division Central of the Southern League. A fourth-place finish in 2018–19 led to the club qualifying for the promotion play-offs. However, after beating Stourbridge 2–1 in the semi-finals, they lost 3–0 to King's Lynn Town in the final. At the end of the season the club won the Worcestershire Senior Cup for the fourth time. In 2022–23 the club reached the FA Cup first round again, winning 2–1 at League One club Cheltenham Town to progress to the second round
