Sikh Hunters Football Club was founded in 1964-65 and has been established for over 55 years. Sikh Hunters F.C. was the brainchild of its three founder members Bagicha Singh, Kernail Singh and Mohinder Singh. Three lads who had previously had the honour of playing for ‘Punjab Select’ back in India, who were eager to put their expertise and knowledge to the local soccer scene here in England.
The club marked their arrival at the commencement of the 1964-65 season, with an exhibition match versus Walsall F.C. supporters club. Through the late sixty’s till the late
seventy’s most of their football was played in the Sunday morning leagues, where they enjoyed many successful years before switching to the Saturday scene.
The 2017/18 saw the club crowned WMRL Division 2 champions and granted promotion into WMRL division 1. Success in division 1 came instantly in the 2018/19 season with victory in the league cup against Worcester Raiders FC.
The Club had its roots in Queen Street Youth Club. In 1969 the Club became Manor Park and the first major trophy won by the Club was the Staffs Presidents Cup in the season 1980/81.
During the mid 80’s, Redgate United started a second team initially as a youth side but becoming an adult side after a couple of seasons.
For the season 1987/88, the Club changed its name to Redgate Clayton and began work on a Clubhouse at their new ground. In this season Redgate Clayton became the first Club in the area to win the Walsall Senior Cup.
During the 80’s/90’s Redgate Clayton actually ran five teams. Two senior Saturday teams, two youth sides and an over 35’s side.
Over their years with the Club the following members of the Committee have been awarded Long Service Certificates by the Staffs FA. Arthur Jackson, Clive Russell, Roger Farr and the much-missed Rob Lovatt.
