Chamberlin and Hill Can't Post or Reply Privately

Looking for any information on Chamberlin and Hill Football Club who were members of the Staffordshire County league in the late 1980s. They were founded as Beechdale FC in 1984 but changed to the works name in 1985-86. Their home ground was Pleck Park, Walsall.
Looking to see how long they played in the Staffs County League and presumably when they finished or what happened to them.

Can't add much except that their final season in the Staffs County was 1990-91.
Don't know if there was any connection but Beechdale Social won the league in 1993-94.

That is excellent, many thanks.
It does appear that the original name change was a sort of sponsorship so maybe it ceased in 1991. The company is still going in Walsall I understand.

My thanks to the chap who passed on a programme for me at Heath Hayes today, don't know who you are but it was extremely kind of you and very much appreciated. My apologies for not being there due to circumstances beyond my control, it would have been nice to have met you and to have thanked you in person.

Not a lot of use I'm afraid, but from my records I know that I came across them in my reffing days twice in season 1987/8 (v Sikh Hunters and Park Rangers), and once in season 1990/1 (v Penkridge) - no programmes at any of these game.
90/91 was my last season on the Staffs Cty Sth, so I do not know if they were still around after that.

Many thanks for that, it all helps to build up a picture.
My original programme was from November 1988 v Wednesfield Town, it is sixteen home-produced pages inside a glossy cover costing 25p and quite impressive for the league they were in.
