History[edit]

Romulus Football Club was formed in 1979 and initially played Sunday league football. After a number of successful years they stepped up to senior football in 1999, entering the Midland Football Combination. In 2003–04 they won this league and were promoted to the Midland Football Alliance. In 2006–07 they finished second in the Alliance and were promoted to the Southern League Division One Midlands, the highest level the club has ever reached.[2]

Several Premier League players, mostly ex-Aston Villa players such as Darius Vassell, Zat Knight and brothers Stefan Moore and Luke Moore, now of Swansea City, played for Romulus early in their careers. Charisma Agbonlahor, brother of Aston Villa striker and England international Gabriel Agbonlahor plays for the team.
