Formed in 1933, Tamworth FC were created after Tamworth Castle folded earlier that season. Since that point, The Lambs have spent their 80 year existence in non-league and most recently have been jostling for space between the fifth and sixth tier of English Football.
In recent years, under the management of former Wrexham AFC manager, Andy Morrell, the club have come close to promotion during the past three seasons finishing sixth, seventh and then ninth place in the National League North and will be looking to go one better this year despite an increasingly competitive division.
Tamworth play at the 4000 capacity ground, The Lamb, which was named after a local inn. Recently, planning permission has been sought for a new 1,800 seater stand incorporating VIP boxes to take the place of the current Main stand, it’s thought the current main stand would then be moved to the Castle End of the stadium if this was to happen.
Prices are between £12 and £14 for adults, and £9 and £7 for concessions. The journey south will take supporters around 100 minutes from the centre of Stockport.
