Within a year or so the football club took on its present mantle and became members of the Worcestershire Combination, where after ending up as runners-up on a couple of occasions, they were crowned champions in 1935-36.
Following the end of World War Two, ‘The Flyers’ joined the Birmingham and District League. They remained in the competition until it was renamed the West Midlands (Regional) League in 1962. Three years later Town were placed in the Premier Division following extension to the league.
Lye went agonisingly close to winning the league title in 1976-77, 1978-79, 1979-80 and 1980-81 when on each occasion they ended the season as runners-up. The wait for the championship came to an end in 1997-98 when the trophy ended up at the Sports Ground.
It was really a case of double delight. The pub had a good clean facility with the added comfort of soft paper. Even better it had its own brewery attached. I will forever fondly remember the Windsor Castle Inn and Sadlers Brewery.
